Mini Dulce de Leche Cheesecake

Homemade Dulce de Leche


Ingredients: (Makes 7 individual cheesecakes)

130g digestive biscuits (or any biscuits of your choice)
45g melted butter

Filling:
250g cream cheese, softened
60g caster sugar
6g corn starch
pinch of salt
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon zest
70g Greek yogurt
1/2 cup dulce de leche, microwave for a few seconds to soften slightly (you can opt for store-bought dulce de leche)

  • Line muffin pans with cupcake liners.
  • Process biscuits in a food processor; add in the melted butter and mix to combine.
  • Spoon biscuits crumbs into paper liners and press crumbs firmly over the base of the liners to form a crust.  Chill in the fridge while preparing the filling.
  • Preheat oven to 135 deg C.
  • Beat cream cheese on medium-low speed until smooth and creamy.
  • Beat in sugar, salt and cornstarch until combined.
  • Add in egg and beat on low speed until incorporated.
  • Add in yogurt, vanilla extract and lemon zest; on low speed beat until just combined.
  • Divide the mixture evenly among the prepared liners. Spoon about 1/4 tsp of Dulce de leche over cheesecake mixture and swirl gently with a toothpick.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes (cheesecakes should be firm but a little wobbly in the centre).
  • Cool the cheesecake on a wire rack, then refrigerate overnight.
  • Before serving, spoon a little Dulce de leche on the cheesecake and sprinkle with some seasalt (optional).
