it was my sister's first try on cheesecake and it was perfect....thankyou SiS

its important not to overbake the ingredients- stop mixing as soon as each ingredient you add is just incorporated. you may think the cake isnt fully baked when you take it out of the oven, but it will set into a perfect cheesecake can also add chopped cookies,brownies or berries just before baking for a flavoured cheesecake.

for base:
i make two different one i just use a simple crushed biscuit base with butter ...the other one you have to make all from scratch...i am including both recepies and ou can choose whichever you want.

biscuit base:
175 g digestive biscuit
75 g melted butter
place the biscuits in a foof processor and whiz til fine.mix them in melted butter and press down into base of a springform tin

140 g plain flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
50 g caster sugar
1 egg yolk

put flour,baking powder,sugar and butter in a mixer and beat till you get sandy consistency.
add the egg yolk and mix through-it will still be sandy but will be a bit more it on to a springform tin and bake for 20-25minutestill golden brown.set aside to cool....

900 g cream cheese
190 g caster sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs

preheat oven to 150c
put cream cheese,sugar,vanilla in a mixer and beat on slow speed till its very smooth and thick.
add egg one at a time while still mixing.the mixture should be very smooth and careful not to overmix or cheese can split.
spoon on cold base.bake for 30-40minutes or til golden brown and still wobbly in centre.donot overbake..let it cool in tin,cover and refrigerate overnight for best result...
