Nutella Cheesecake

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 200 g digestive cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter (113 g)
  • 2 tbsp sugar (25 g)

For the filling:

  • 250 g cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (100 g)
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g heavy cream
  • 150 g Nutella

For the frosting:

  • 60 g dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup butter (75 g)
  • 80 g powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Grease, or spray with Pam, a spring form pan. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). In a bowl combine the cookies (finally crushed), sugar, and melted butter.

Press the crumbs evenly over the bottom of the spring form pan.  Cover and refrigerate while you make the filling.

In bowl place the cream cheese, sugar, and flour.  Beat on medium speed until smooth.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add the Nutella and heavy cream and stir well.

Take the crust out of the refrigerator and pour in the filling. Bake it at 150 C (300 F) for about 1h and 15 min.

In the meantime prepare the frosting by melting the chocolate, beating the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy and then adding to it the melted chocolate.

Spread the frosting over the cheesecake, cover and refrigerate.
