Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Start off by placing the Digestive Biscuits (1 cup) and Amaretti Biscuits (1 oz) into a food processor and pulse them until powdered.
Step 2
With your food processor running, slowly pour in the Unsalted Butter (1/3 cup) and pulse until the mixture comes together.
Step 3
Press it down at the bottom and around the edges of an 8-inch springform. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, while you make the filling.
Step 4
Cream the Mascarpone Cheese (2 cups) and Fresh Cream (3/4 cup) together with the Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup) .
Step 5
Add in the Vanilla Bean Paste (1/2 tsp) and the Eggs (2) , one at a time mixing just enough but without incorporating too much air. This will help to prevent the cheesecake from cracking while baking.
Step 6
Once the 30 minutes is almost up for the crust, preheat the oven to 340 degrees F (170 degrees C).
Step 7
Pour in the mixture into the refrigerated base and level it out using the back of a spoon.
Step 8
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour.
Step 9
For the persimmon jelly, soak the Gelatin Sheets (0.5 oz) in cold water for 10 minutes.
Step 10
Meanwhile pureé the Persimmons (1 cup) .
Step 11
Transfer the pureéd persimmons, Granulated Sugar (1 1/2 Tbsp) and Lemon Juice (1 Tbsp) into a saucepan and cook on low for 5 minutes.
Step 12
Add the gelatin and stir until it is completely melted.
Step 13
Spread the jelly onto the chilled cheesecake, decorate with some slices of hard Persimmons (4 slices) , a few Amaretti Biscuits (2) and some Fresh Mint Leaves (to taste) . Store the cheesecake in your fridge until ready to serve.
