Decadent Dulce de Leche Cheesecake

Servings :14.


For curst:

  • 18 full sheets of graham crackers (about 300gr cookies)
  • ¼ cup (50gr) sugar
  • 10 tablespoons (140gr) unsalted butter, melted

For cheesecake filling:

  • 24oz (700gr) cream cheese, softened (Brick-style, full fat version)
  • 1/3 cup (65gr) sugar
  • 1 can (400gr/14oz) dulce de leche, divided
  • ½ cup (125gr) sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • Sea salt flakes for dusting, optional


  • To make the crust, crush the graham crackers in a food processor until fine crumbs form.
  • Add sugar and melted butter and pulse until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Transfer the crumbs into a 9-inch springform pan. Press the mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Refrigerate while working on filling.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • To make the cheesecake filling, in a mixing bowl with paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until fluffy on medium speed. Stir in the sugar. Then add about ¾ of dulce de leche (the remaining ¼ of the can will be used for spreading on top for decoration) and sour cream. Continue to mix until combined.
  • Stir in vanilla extract and salt. Beat in the eggs one at a time and mix just until combined on low speed. Transfer the batter into the prepared crust.
  • Bake the cheesecake for 45-50 minutes, or until the edges are set and slightly wobbly in the center. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Then carefully run a knife around edge of the pan to loosen; cool for 2 hours. Then refrigerate to set completely for at least another 2 hours.
  • When ready to serve, remove springform sides of the pan and spread the reserved dulce de leche on top. Sprinkle some sea salt, if desired. Store the cheesecake in a fridge, covered, for up to 5 days.
