Sempoi Dates Cheesecake Slice w Caramel Fudge Sauce

Fasting month = dates, dates + cheese = my fav :D. Just couldn't resist trying this recipe from the Philedelphia cheese cookbook. Simple + what more it goes with the caramel fudge sauce .. yummilicious! vavavoom!

100g butternut snap biscuits, crushed (I used gingernut snap but the ginger's taste was a bit overpowering, use any sweet / digestive biscuits will also be ok)
30g butter, melted

- mix well biscuit crumbs & butter, press into a greased & lined baking dish (9cm x 20cm loaf pan) & chill in fridge


375g (1 1/2 blocks) Phildelphia cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 teaspoons plain flour
5-6 dates, chopped small

- preheat oven 160'c
- beat cheese, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer / food processor till smooth
- add egg, beat till well combined
- stir in flour & dates
- bring out the biscuit base from fridge, pour filling onto the base
- bake for about 25 minutes or until just set (touch top, if doesn't stick means its ready)
- cool in oven with door open then chill in fridge for till serving

1 cup dark brown sugar
80g butter
1/3 cup cream

- combine and stir brown sugar, butter and cream in a saucepan over low heat until thickened
- cool a bit before serving with cheesecake slice

Happy trying ... :)
