Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 package (5.5-ounce) sesame breadsticks or crackers
1/2 cup butter, melted
1-1/2 pounds goat cheese
1 package (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
5 large eggs
1 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes marinated in oil, drained and thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously butter a 9-inch springform pan. Wrap outside of pan in foil to 'waterproof' it (foil should come halfway up the side); set aside.
Process breadsticks in food processor until you have fine crumbs; combine with melted butter. Press crumb mixture along bottom and up sides of prepared pan; chill.
Combine goat cheese, cream cheese, eggs, rosemary, salt and pepper in food processor; process until well mixed. Spoon into chilled crust.
Set cheesecake pan into larger pan; fill outer pan with water until halfway up sides of springform pan.
Bake about 70 minutes; top of cheesecake should be lightly browned and, when touched gently in the center, dry to the touch but still soft. Cool and refrigerate overnight.
Garnish with sun-dried tomatoes.
