I LOVE cheesecake, but not just any cheesecake! I LOVE mexican style cheesecake AKA Pie de Queso. My mom taught me how to make it a LONG time ago and now it's one of my FAVORITE recipes. It's different from regular cheesecake and you will see why when you see the list of ingredients.
Here is what you will need to make this.. Actually this recipe makes THREE cheesecakes so if you don't want to gain 10lbs you might want to share a pie or two with your family or friends.
- 6 Eggs
- 2 Cream Cheese
- 2 Sweetened Condensed Milk cans (You MUST buy La Lechera)
- A box of Marias cookies (you will only use about 2 packets but they're so good, just buy the whole box!)
- A couple lime drops
- About 2 sticks of melted butter.
First we will create our crust. You will need to crush about 2 packets of Marias cookies ( I usually use the blender for this). You will also need to have your melted butter ready. Once your cookies are crushed you distribute the crushed cookies onto three pie molds. Add melted butter little by little...
until you feel you have enough to create a crust. If you add too much butter just borrow some crushed cookies from your other mold...
With a spoon begin to make your crust by pressing it onto your pie mold.
Once your pie molds are ready you can blend all of the remaining ingredients together (cream cheese, eggs, lecheras & a couple of lime drops). Then distribute your blended ingredients onto all three pie molds..
Bake 25-30mins at 350°
Take out of the oven and let cool. Once they are cool, refrigerate for a couple hours and serve cold. You can top your cheesecake with strawberries like I did...
