Pastillas Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Recipe

Makes 1 9-inch cheesecake


1/2 cup butter, melted

2 cups digestive biscuits, crushed

1/2 cup butter, melted

½ cup pastillas, cut into ½-inch pieces, plus more for decorating

2 (227-gram) bars cream cheese, at room temperature

1/2 cup caster sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 medium-sized eggs, beaten slightly

1/4 cup store-bought dulce de leche

Extra dulce de leche, for drizzling



Preheat oven to 350ºF.


2 Mix crushed biscuits with melted butter and press down onto the base of the pan.


3 Spread pastillas over the base and chill until ready to assemble.


4 Using a mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and eggs together until smooth and creamy.


5 Remove pan from refrigerator. Pour cream cheese mixture over the top of the pastillas and swirl dulce de leche in the mixture.



6 Bake for 40 minutes or until pale golden. When you gently shake the pan, the cake should only wobble slightly.


7 Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for about 10 to 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the cake. Carefully remove the cheesecake from the pan. Transfer to a serving plate. Sprinkle top with a few pieces of pastillas, then drizzle with dulce de leche.


8 Cut into slices to serve. This cheesecake is best eaten when it is at room temperature.
