Pitted Cherries Cheese Slice

Since some of my relatives and Mum's friends love to eat cheesecake. I decided to make this Pitted Cherries Cheese Slice for New Year Dessert.

It pretty easy to make as it only required stir and double-boil to melted the ingredients the pour over the base and keep in the fridge for a few hours. For the top layer, I used some Grand Mariner to replace Kirsch Liqueur because I don't have that at home.

Ingredients For Crust:
150g Chocolate Oreo Cookies, crushed
120g Butter, melted
30g Walnuts, toasted and chopped

1. Combine all ingredients and press into a 8" loose base square baking tin and chill in the fridge for until firm.(about 20 minutes)

Ingredients For Filling:
250g Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Soften
140g Sugar
150g Sour Cream
200ml Non Dairy Whipped Cream
4 Tablespoons Full Cream Fresh Milk
2 Tablespoons Gelatine Powder
2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/2 - 3/4 Canned Dark Pitted Cherries

1. Double boil and whisk the cream cheese, sugar, sour cream and whipped cream together until smooth.(you will see some tiny lumpy cheese in the mixture but it will not affect the texture)
2. Dilute the full cream milk and gelatine powder into a double boiler until it gelatine dissolved.
3. Add diluted gelatine into the cheese mixture then follow by lemon juice and stir well.
4. Remove the chocolate base and arrange the dark pitted cherries onto the crust.
5. Slowly pour over cheese mixture and chill in the fridge for about 3 hours.

Ingredients For Top Layer:
150ml Syrup From Dark Pitted Cherries
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon Gelatine Powder
160ml Water
1/2 Tablespoon of Grand Mariner

1. Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook(except the liquor) with low heat until gelatine has dissolved.
2. Leave to cool, add in the Grand Mariner, mix well then spoon mixture onto the chilled cake.
3. Put back into the fridge for another 3 hours or over night.

a) Removed the cream from the Oreo Cookies before crushing it.
b) You can used a 8" square mousse tin and wrap the base with aluminium foil and place it on a cake board.Posted by Picasa
