Don’t remember from where I took note of this recipe . Tried it out and the gelatin I used was not enough to set the Cheese cake right so next time I used more and it was yummylishous . I first got to hear and know about cheese cakes when my kids were 2-4 years old from my sister fazeem . She had just returned from a long holiday in U . S. A . Cheese cake was one among the main stories that she shared about her trip ( as I mentioned before its her who inspired me in trying a hand in desserts ) the way she explains and talks about the desserts you sure will be tempted to eat and know more about it . But cheese cake , I was like we use cheese only for savoury dishes ….. Desserts with cheese . My mind set took a long time to take away the savoury tought of cheese . Give it a try and go cheeeeeeeeese .
