2. Cream (A) until smooth. Add (B) and cream until well blended.
3. Add (C) one at a tine and cream until well combined. Add (D) and cream until smooth.

5. Pour the cheese filling onto the prepared biscuit base.
6. Bake in water bath at 160C for 70 – 80 minutes or until golden brown and the center is set. Remove it from the oven and set aside to cool. Refrigerate for 5 hours before serving.

For (D) you can use all sour cream or whipping cream.

Note:
1. Recipe asked for cottage cheese but I had use cream cheese. Just cream cheese as usual.
2. Instead of 40g sour cream and 40g whipping cream, I had use 80g whipping cream.
3. Reduce the sugar if you prefer less sweet.

Hi,

Thanks, Waterbath is:

Wrap the springform tin/pan with aluminum foil. Place it onto a shallow baking pan. Fill the shallow pan with water up to 2 to 2.5cm depth.

If you are still not too sure perhaps u can take a look at the link I had provided you. So roughly you might get what I’m saying :p Hope it helps.
