Preparation -- 10 minutes

Start making cookie crumbs, you can use a food processor, blender or even a rolling pin to do so. Melt butter in a small saucepan and mix them together with your cookie crumbs.

Coat a spring form with butter and press the cookie crumbs into the form to create a very easy pie crust. Place in the refrigerator until the filling is ready. Soak the gelatin leaves in cold water.  

Heat water, sugar and juice of half a lemon in a small saucepan. Turn down the heat when the gelatin leaves are soft, squeeze the water out of them and dissolve in the water and sugar mixture. Use a whisk to reach a smooth mix and let it cool off to room temperature.

Use a stand mixer or handmixer to make a smooth filling. Combine cream cheese, cream, lemon zest and pulp of 3 passionfruit. Stir the gelatin mixture into the cream cheese filling.

Scoop the filling into the springform, refrigerate and wait about 3 hours (or until firm). Serve with extra passionfruit pulp and if desired you can add some whipped cream.
