  • Starting with the base, place your cookies of choice in a mixer and whizz them up until finely crushed. Add the melted butter and process until combined. 

  • Spread the base and press it down firmly on the bottom of a deep springform tin. Bake at 350 °F for 8 to 10 mins, then let the crust cool for another 10 mins.

  • In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and 1 cup of brown sugar for the cheesecake filling. Using an electric mixer, beat the ingredients until smooth. Add ¾ of a cup of whipping cream. Eggs should be added one at a time, just until blended. Pour the filling over the crust.

  • Bake at 300 °F for 1 hour and ~15 mins, until the cheesecake is set in shape but still jiggly. Let the cheesecake cool and set for around 30 mins. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.

  • Upon serving, drizzle the salted caramel mixture over your cake, with additional sea salt flakes, if desired.


  • Make sure you’re using Full-Fat cream cheese for the filling to set.

  • If you don’t want your caramel to melt into the filling, sprinkle some flour on the top of the cheesecake before baking it, which creates a nice barrier for your caramel to sit on top of.

  • The salted caramel sauce can be easily made at home by melting brown sugar in a pan and adding butter, whipping cream and sea salt, until the mixture reaches a creamy texture. Don’t forget to let it cool before pouring it onto the cake!

Bon Appetit!
