Birthday cheesecake

And one year has gone since Isabella has put her charm on us.
We are possibly very unconventional parents and decided to not care about birthday party and other fancy things that most parents would probably do. We simply have a different belief over this :-)
We celebrated her very properly having a very nice day with her and preparing a cake, that she could eat.
I am not a very talented dessert-maker so I was afraid of the result, but it turned out to be a simple and fast cake, very tasty and appreciated by both kids and adults.


  • 250 gr of digestive cookies
  • 80 gr of melted butter
  • 300 gr of philadelphia cheese
  • 200 gr of yogurt (or cream)
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar (or less if you are planning this for a bunch of 1 year old kids)
  • jam or fresh fruit as guarnish
In a bowl, whip the cream (yogurt). Add the cheese with the sugar and keep whipping. I took then a spoon and mixed with it until the mix became a nice thick cream.
Crumble the cookies in a blender/whatever device of your choice until they have a very granular consistency.
Mix them with the melted butter.
Prepare the cake baking tin and put the mix of cookies and butter, making sure that it becomes very compact (you can use your fingers ;-)) and level it.
Put on top the cream and flatten it as much as you can.
Decorate the cake as you wish (if you use fruit it is better to do so after you take the cake out of the fridge) and put it to cool in the fridge for at least 4 hours. 

Happy Birthday, Isabella ;-) (it was yesterday, of course...)
