For the cheesecake:

  • 600 g of fresh cheese

  3. Assemble the cheesecake:
    • Pour one-third of the cheesecake mixture into the prepared crust.
    • Add spoonfuls of regular dulce de leche and use a knife to create a marbled effect.
    • Repeat with another layer of cheesecake mixture and more dulce de leche.
    • Cover with remaining cheesecake mixture and smooth the surface.
  4. Freeze and serve:
    • Freeze the cheesecake until solid. When ready to serve, remove from the pan and garnish with dulce de leche.
