cheesecake making :D

hee. step sister brought tom yam over yesterday night cause i didn't have anything to eat for dinner. she just packed everything into two tupperwares and even cooked rice for me. whee :D she's gonna pick me up tomorrow morning to go to Vic Mart as well. yay!

it kinda spilt out of the tupperware into the plastic bag.

yum yum yum :D

anyway! made cheesecakes. don't worry i'm not turning into some asian martha stewart. i just sorta made one for my step sister cause she dropped the tomyam over and one more for amal cause i'm supposed to be going over to her place for buka puasa sometime this weekend.

that's everything i used. butter, philadelphia cream cheese, strawberry yoghurt, digestive biscuits and thickened cream.

crush the digestive biscuits first. u need about half a 400g packet, slightly less?

u could do it in a plastic/paper bag if u want but the trouble i have with that is that the sharp ages cut through the plastic/paper and u get crumbs EVERYWHERE. if ur doing it in a bowl though, make it a really deep one cause otherwise u'll get get crumbs everywhere too :S

after ur done with the crushing cut a block of butter about THAT size (it's a 250g bar of butter) and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds to melt it.

pour it with the biscuit crumbs and mix it around really well. u need just enough butter to make it hold but not clumpy!!

pour everything into a pan and pat it down with a spoon really REALLY tightly.

it has to be flat and packed down. noooooooo spaces in between at ALL. then u need to dump that in the fridge for it to set.

while it's in the fridge...

empty a 200g pack yoghurt (whatever flavour you want) into a mixing bowl..

cut half of a 250g block of cream cheese and dump it into the mixing bowl with the yoghurt.

use the blendy thingie to mix it all together. don't worry bout the lumps just yet but get it as smooth as possible.

then add in half a 250g bottle of thickened cream. dont bother whisking it, i just realised that the blendy thingie will do it for u too :P

wheee! mix it all together and u should see ripple type things and the whole mixture should start to thicken. if u dont really like cheesy type tastes (THEN WHY YOU MAKING A CHEESE CAKE DUMBASS?!?!?) put in some vanilla essence. it'll mask the taste somewhat :)

take the base out of the fridge...

and dump everything on it. the mixture CANT be runny. it has to be able to blop like that.

use a spoon and sorta smooth out the top and ur done :D you need to put it back in the fridge for about 4 hours and after that it should set.

yup i'm done being domestic now. this is what boredom on friday night does to you. sigh back to essay. or maybe to bed. bah.
