    Default Cheesecake

    I saw Fiona May on a TV program last week. She was cooking a cheese cake with a "combo" between Philadelphia and Yocca. Then she put it into the fridge 4 a couple of hours and she served it chilled.
    The cake biscuit was extra slim but the cream looked very whipped. How can I achieve that? How do I have to make a cheese cake? Does it taste good?
    Thanks

    It's a cottage cheese flake-shaped by Kraft. You buy this little box and you get this kind of "cream" (it's actually thicker than a cream) made of all those flakes.
    It's fresh, it doesn't smell and it's not even salty (as usually cheese is). It's ok for cheesecakes and it's belonging, I think, to the same family of Philadelphia cheese.
    It looks like this when you open the box (PS: it's actually Jocca, not Yocca):

    I always use this recipe for "Philadelphia 3-step cheesecake" from the Kraft website. It's simple and good. They also have recipes for several variations:
    PHILADELPHIA® 3-STEP® Cheesecake
