It has been awhile since we have posted. Work, travel and life sometimes get in the way. But I needed to come back to post this amazing cheesecake I made yesterday! I have been traveling quite a bit for work and when I was in Brazil (over my birthday) my coworkers got me this Dulce de leche with coconut. I decided to make a cheesecake with it!
Since we are gluten free, I needed something for the crust. I found some GF snicker doodles from Wow baking company that I thought would work great. Crushed them up, added some melted butter and presto – crust.
I used 13.4 ounces, which is the same size as a typical can I get here.
After mixing up the base, I warmed the dulce de leche, dropped it by tablespoonfuls on top. Then swirled it in with a knife – starting to look good!
Baked it for about 80 minutes. The top was jiggly so it was done. Cheesecake is a bit tricky and you do not want to overcook or it will get dry. I let it cool for an hour before adding some toppings. I added some chocolate sauce then put in the fridge to chill for 12 hours.
The finishing touch was to mix hot water with more of the dulce de leche and spread on top. Man this was so good. Will be making this again. Cheers!
