Sunday Baking: Christmas Cheesecake Refined

I had another go at the Christmas cheesecake this week, for Christmas dessert. This time I adjusted the crust, making it with the shortbread biscuits as per the original recipe but adding the finely grated rind of two clementines to make it extra Christmassy.


What's everyone else having?

I left out most of the candy for this version, to make the most of the ultra-Christmassy sprinkles. It is even more delicious than the original; it felt like the cinnamon in the crust of the first version competed a little with the flavours of the mincemeat.


The new tin worked really well, too. I was a little sceptical about a ceramic base and a silicon ring, but it appeared to keep all of the water out and was extremely easy to get off at the end. I might even brave it without foil next time, since it was impossible to get it in smoothly.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Hope you've had a great day and Santa brought you what you wanted.
