Ingredients:

  • For the base
  • 200 grams Maria type cookies or digestive cookies

  • 100 grams Melted butter

  • For the filling
  • 500 grams Cream cheese

  • 200 grams sugar

  • 250 grams Agraz (lingonberries)

  • 3 Und Eggs

  • 1 Teaspoonful Vanilla extract

  • Para la cobertura
  • 250 grams Agraz (lingonberries)

  • 50 grams sugar

  • 1 Tablespoon 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Crush the cookies in a food processor or place them in a bag and crush them with a rolling pin until you have fine crumbs. Mix the cookie crumbs with the melted butter until you obtain a uniform dough.
  • Cubre el fondo de un molde para cheesecake con la masa de galleta, presionando firmemente con la parte posterior de una cuchara para compactarla. Luego, coloca el molde en el refrigerador mientras preparas el relleno.
  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract and mix again.
  • Add the agraz (cranberries) to the bowl and mix gently until they are well distributed in the cheese mixture.
  • Pour the cheese and sugar mixture over the cookie base in the mold.
  • Bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center still jiggles slightly when moved.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. Then, refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight to set it and get a firmer texture.
  • To make the topping, place the remaining agraz in a saucepan along with the sugar and lemon juice. Cook over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, or until the beans have softened and released their juices, and the mixture has thickened slightly.
  • Let it cool.

Tips

Grape cheesecake and its health benefits

While blackberry cheesecake can be delicious, it is important to keep in mind that it is a high-calorie and high-fat dessert due to the use of cream cheese and other ingredients.

However, the cranberries in cheesecake may offer health benefits, such as antioxidants that protect the body against damage caused by free radicals.

They can also promote cardiovascular health by reducing blood pressure and improving blood circulation thanks to their antioxidants and phytonutrients.

Additionally, it has been suggested that agras may have positive effects on brain function and memory due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

They are a source of vitamin C, important for the immune system and protection against diseases.

However, it is essential to note that these benefits are mainly found in cheesecakes and that cheesecake itself is still an indulgent dessert that should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
