Kiwi cheesecake

Method

For the crust

  • Preheat oven over 180οC (355* F) Set to Fan.
  • Beat the cookies in the food processor until they turn into powder.
  • Add the melted butter and beat until the cookie has a wet sand-like texture.
  • Transfer mixture to a detachable 23 cm cake pan.
  • Press with a glass until the cookie crust is compressed.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and set aside to cool.  

For the cream

  • In a mixer’s bowl, whisk the cream cheese, icing sugar and lemon juice for 1-2 minutes until the ingredients are homogenized and have a yogurt-like texture.
  • Spread the cream over the cooled crust.
  • Cover the outside of a 20 cm bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Press the cream with a bowl to create an indentation.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours until thickened.
  • Remove bowl. You will note that the cream is higher towards the walls of the mold than in the center.

For the kiwi jelly

  • Soak the gelatin sheets in a bowl filled with cold water.
  • Peel the kiwis, cut them in half and using a knife, remove the white part.
  • In a food processor, beat the green part of the kiwis. Throw away the white part because if used it will give a bitter taste to the jelly.
  • In a pot, place the kiwi juice and sugar.
  • Allow it to come to a boil until the sugar dissolves.
  • Remove pot from heat. Strain the gelatin sheets and add them to the pot. Mix until they dissolve and transfer to a bowl. Let it slightly cool (20-30 minutes). Make sure it is not completely cooled because then it will be hard to spread.
  • Pour the mixture into the center of the cake pan until the kiwi jelly completely covers the cream. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours until the mixture thickens.
  • Turn out of pan and serve.
