- Preheat the oven to 160°C, 140 °C fan oven, Gas mark 3.
- Grind the biscuits finely in a food processor or put them in a plastic bag, place it on the work surface and roll the cookies with a rolling pin into fine crumbs.
- Melt the Stork in a large saucepan and stir in the biscuit crumbs.
- Divide the biscuit mixture evenly over the base of the prepared cake tin and press firmly with the back of a spoon.
- Finely grate the lemon over a large bowl. Squeeze the lemon and add about 2 tablespoons of the juice to the zest (the rest of the juice is not used).
- Stir the cornflour with the lemon and mix with the cream cheese, brown sugar and the vanilla, using a wooden spoon. Gradually beat in the eggs one by one.
- Pour the cream cheese mixture over the base of the prepared tin. Put the tin in the preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes until the filling is quite solid.
- Turn the oven off, leave the oven door slightly open and let the cheesecake cool in the oven. Cover with cling film and leave the cheesecake in the refrigerator for a day or overnight to stiffen further. Remove from the tin and sprinkle the cake with icing sugar, cut into 8-10 slices.
