Christmas Cheesecake

I've been busy lately updating my Swedish blog. As the result was very pleasing I'll try to update this one as well, the layout will be more or less the same.

Well holidays are over but some people try to hang on to Christmas for as long as they can. I am not one of these people but there is one thing I can eat all year around: "Christmas Rice". It's almost like Christmas pudding. Rice cooked in milk with cinnamon.
A must for a swede *and others as well* is gingersnaps and cinnamon cookies.

So a few days after Christmas i had some cookies and rice left. What to do?
Well a kind of cheesecake came to my mind. Without the cheese though. But the taste is lovely and reminds of cheesecake, therefor the name Christmas cheesecake.
Christmas Cheesecake

1.5 cups of crushed cookies such as ginger snaps, cinnamon cookies, digestive

25gram butter
4tbsp corn syrup

Mix all ingredients and flatten in a round form using fingertips.

1.5-3.5 cups of rice cooked in milk
2tbsp cream

4tbsp sugar (depending on how sweet the rice is)

4-5tbsp lemon juice

2small eggs

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and pour over the cake mix.
Bake for 20-25 min, medium heat. Sprinkle some Cinnamon before serving, serve with cream or berries/lemon slices

This cake becomes quite flat in terms of thickness, for a thicker cake double the rice recipe.
