How to prepare: Cold cheesecake
Start preparing the cold cheesecake from the base: chop the biscuits finely with the mixer, put them in a bowl and mix them with the melted butter. Alternatively, you can pulverize them with a meat mallet after having closed them in a food bag. Arrange the mixture to cover the bottom of a 22 cm diameter springform pan, leveling well with the back of a spoon. Place in the refrigerator until ready to compose the dessert.
Soak the gelatin in cold water for the time indicated on the package, about 10 minutes. In a bowl, whip the fresh cheese with the sugar, 150 g of cream and the vanilla seeds extracted from the berry, until the mixture is smooth. Place the remaining cream in a saucepan and let it heat up. Add the well-squeezed gelatin and stir until dissolved.
Let it cool and add the mixture to the fresh cheese mixture, mixing well. Pour everything over the biscuit base, level and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. After this time, heat the raspberry jam in a saucepan with the water and lemon juice. Let it cool and distribute it on the surface of the cake. Place in the refrigerator again for 1 hour.
Then turn out the cold cheesecake and serve.
