    • 500 g cottage cheese (or a similar creamy cheese)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the oven and the pan:
    • Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F). Line a 26cm baking tin with baking paper or lightly grease it.
  2. Make the base:
    • Mix the crushed butter biscuits with the melted butter. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan to form a crust. Put aside.
  3. Mix the filling:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until frothy. Add the fromage blanc, vanilla paste, flour and cream. Blend until smooth.
    • Pour the filling onto the biscuit base in the mold.
  4. Bake the cheesecake:
    • When putting the cake in the oven, reduce the temperature to 120°C (248°F).
    • Bake at 120°C for 60 minutes, or until set but still slightly wobbly in the centre.
    • Let the cake cool completely in the pan, then carefully remove the pan.
  5. Decorate the cheesecake:
    • Heat the pistachio cream in a bain-marie until it becomes spreadable. Spread it gently over the cooled cheesecake.
    • Sprinkle with crushed pistachios around the edge and decorate with raspberries.
  6. Presentation suggestions:
    • Serve this cheesecake chilled. It pairs wonderfully with a cup of coffee or a glass of dessert wine.

Storage: Store the cheesecake in the refrigerator and eat within 3-4 days for optimal flavor and texture. Cover lightly with plastic wrap to prevent drying out.
