Ingredients

For the crust:

1 1/2 cups finely ground Maria cookies, vanilla wafers or graham crackers

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing the pan


For the cream cheese filling:

1 pound cream cheese, at room temperature

1 14-ounce can La Lechera sweetened condensed milk

3 large eggs, at room temperature


For the dulce de leche topping:

1 1/2 cups sour cream

1 14-ounce can La Lechera dulce de leche

1 cup chopped pecans

To Prepare

Butter a 9- to 10-inch springform pan and set aside.

To make the crust: In a large bowl combine the ground cookies and melted butter until thoroughly mixed. Turn the cookie mixture into the springform pan. With your fingers, pat it evenly around the bottom of the pan, gently pushing it up the sides to make a crust 1/2- to 1-inch tall. Refrigerate while you make the cream cheese filling and dulce de leche topping.

To make cream cheese filling: Place the cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat at medium speed until smooth and light, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the sweetened condensed milk and continue beating until well mixed, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add the eggs one at a time, again scraping down the bowl as needed, and continue beating until the mixture is well blended and smooth, set aside.

To make the dulce de leche topping: In a medium bowl, mix the sour cream with the dulce de leche until combined.

Adjust the oven rack to the lower third of the oven and preheat to 350°F.

Remove the springform pan from the refrigerator. Gently spread the cream cheese filling evenly, trying not to distress the crust. Place the cheesecake in the oven and bake for 35 minutes, or until it is set and the top is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes before you add the dulce de leche topping.

Spoon the dulce de leche topping over the cream cheese filling, add the pecans all around the edge and place the pan back in the oven for 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cheesecake cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. It tastes even better if it chills overnight.

Before serving, run the tip of a wet knife around the edge of the pan to release the cheesecake. Remove the ring, then slice and serve the cake.

Watched your episode on PBS last Saturday. Tried your recipes and try were all excellent.

Yey! Thanks for taking the time to write.



My 6 year old daughter and I tried your recipe and let me tell you everyone loved it. We saw the episode together and she quickly said “Mami I want to make that cake like Juju”.

So delighted to hear Claudia!



Hi,
I saw this episode the other week and have made everything except cheesecake. Which I am making on tomorrow. My family have enjoyed everything I’ve made so far. My are helping me with the cheesecake as well, they’re so excited.
Thank you.

Thank YOU!



My husband and I enjoy watching your show together. Today will be the third time I make this dessert. It’s oh so good!!! And easy to make. Your boys are adorable, Juju has stolen our heart. Looking forward to more recipes.

¡Saludos y buen provecho!

Hi Magdalena, I will pass on to Juju. Thanks for watching!



Loved this episode! Your children are delightful, and JuJu’s performance was hilarious! Will be making the cheesecake for an event tomorrow.


How do I find/make dulce de leche?

Hi Wanda-I found the Dulce De Leche in the international section of my grocery store. If your store doesn’t carry it you can go to YouTube where they have tutorials on how to make Dulce de Leche or you can order it through Amazon. I will say I tried to make it following the YouTube tutorial and found it to be quite messy and time consuming. I hope you’re able to find it at your store. Happy baking!
