Hi hi hi...
I have office team xmas party tonight in my apartment.
It's a potluck party so everyone needs to cook and bring their own country dish.
I am given a task to prepare the dessert and am planning to make martabak manis a.k.a terang bulan as it's Indonesian signature dish.
But, who knows there will be something ruining it... I make another dessert.

New York Baked Cheesecake! Tadaaaa!!!
I actually randomly picked this as I don't know what to make.
Egg tart is boring so I want to try something new.
My choices are between cheesecake or macaroon.
I compared both recipes, ingredients and how to make it... forget about macaroon.
It's so troublesome, in fact that if this does not turn well, I will be screwed.
So, I decided to make cheesecake and will try to make macaroon later on.

Here is the recipe:

250gr biscuit
125gr butter

750 gr cream cheese - softened
225gr cup caster sugar
3 eggs
169gr cup sour cream
1/4 cup lemon juice
lemon grind

Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees Celcius.
1. Melt butter, ground biscuit. Mix both well, put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
2. Mix cream cheese, lemon grind and sugar until it is mixed well.
3. Add egg one at a time and mix it well each time.
4. Add sour cream and lemon juice, mix it well.
5. Take the crust from the fridge, pour the filling on the top of the crust.
6. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees Celcius for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Leave it in the oven (door closed) for another 20-30 minutes.
7. Once it is cooled down and set, take from the oven, leave it for 15 minutes to cool down and put it in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight.

The results?

I burnt the edge a bit cos I change the oven with fan at the end (don't do this). It tastes perfect though, not bitter at all. Fiuhhh....

Not that hard, isn't it?
Enjoy and try it at home.
