White chocolate cheesecake - Lilie Bakery

Ce white chocolate cheesecake will seduce you with its airy texture, like a mousse! The key ingredient? The addition of whisked egg whites to the classic preparation….

How to make this white chocolate cheesecake?

Like all cheesecake, we start by making the base with mixed cookies and melted butter. I like to use low-sugar cookies for this.

Then for the creamy preparation, this is a mixture of fresh cheese (Philadelphia), crème fraîche and white chocolate. The key ingredient, as specified above, are the whisked egg whites that are incorporated at the last moment to lighten everything!

Why are you going to love this recipe?

For its delicious white chocolate taste! I recommend you use a white chocolate pastry of quality if possible. You will also love it for its airy texture like a mousse!

It's light, and it can be served easily at the end of a meal, accompanied by fresh fruit, or with a raspberry or red fruit coulis ...

    First of all FElicitation for this wonderful blog. I would like to make this recipe but I have a quick question I have a gas oven which is not really made for pastry unfortunately but I was wondering if I cook it 50 min at 180 will it make me overcook the cookie? I don't have a blender can I crush them in a freezer bag with a glass?
    I hope see you soon!
    Thank you for these recipes

      Thanks Roxana! For the oven, I admit that I have never tested a gas oven, so I cannot advise you. On the other hand, do not worry about overcooking the biscuit because it soaks up the cream cheese mixture, so it is always a little damp. Good idea to crush your cookies with a glass! @ soon

    First of all, thank you for your wonderful recipe blog!
    I really like this cheesecake recipe, except for the white chocolate (that's just my personal taste). Do you think it is possible to make it as is by removing this ingredient? I'm looking for a cheesecake recipe with baking, the idea of ​​egg whites seemed very useful to me, I would have liked to try.
    Thanks again.
