Triangle Cheesecake – Cape Malay Cooking & Other Delights – Salwaa Smith
One of the first cheesecake recipes I learned to make as a teenager many years ago and is still a favourite 🙂
1 large egg
250g cream cheese
24 tennis biscuits
1 cup fresh cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
15 glace cherries
Flake chocolate to decorate
In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar together.
Add the egg, vanilla essence and cream cheese.
Place 3 rows of tennis biscuits on a piece of foil.
Place rows length wise side by side.
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the biscuits.
Add a row of cherries down the centre.
Lift the foil from sides of the pyramid leaving the center biscuits to form a base, pinch the two sides together to close.
Leave to set in the fridge overnight.
Before serving, spread the cake with whipped cream and garnish with the chocolate.
