Preparation of the cheesecake with caramel plums

This time we are going to start with the base. To do this, take a mold where you plan to prepare the cake. Preferably refractory as it will go to the fridge. Now, butter it trying to cover all the spaces.

Place a layer of the crushed cookies on the base and add a little butter melted with sugar and vanilla. Then, repeat the procedure 2 times and help with a spatula or trowel to reinforce the base and make it solid.

Take to the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. You can then prepare to make the filling and the fruit.

Preparation of the filling

For the filling, place the cream cheese in a small bowl and beat with an electric mixer until the mixture is smooth. Add the condensed milk and vanilla to taste.

Cover and let's continue with the preparation of the fruit.

Decoration preparation

Once the filling is ready, take the sugar, water, vanilla and plums and place them in a pot. Over medium heat for about 25 minutes.

Evaluate the consistency and that the water has evaporated a little so that the plum takes on the caramel texture that we are looking for.

When ready, pour the plums into a bowl and wait for it to cool down a bit.

Assembling the caramel plum cheesecake

With all the past ready, it is time to assemble the cake as such. For this, take the mold with the base cookies. And add the cream cheese and condensed milk mixture.

Get a palette or spatula to distribute it evenly throughout the mold. Then add the caramel plums for the final touch. Spread the fruit well and put it in the freezer.

Wait 2 hours on average and voilà! A caramel plum cheesecake to enjoy.
