Ingredients
  

For the biscuit base:

  • 250 grams 9 ounces Tim Tam biscuits, crushed
  • ¼ cup 60 grams unsalted butter, melted

For the cheesecake filling:

  • 750 grams 26 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup 200 grams granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup 60 ml sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs

For the chocolate ganache:

  • 1 cup 200 ml thickened (heavy) cream
  • ½ cup 100 grams dark chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the biscuit base:
    Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F). Grease an 18x28cm (7x11-inch) baking pan.

    In a medium bowl, combine the crushed Tim Tam biscuits and melted butter.
    Mix until well combined and press firmly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan.
    Set aside.
  • Make the cheesecake filling:
    In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until light and fluffy.
    Add the sour cream, vanilla extract, and eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    Pour the cheesecake filling over the prepared biscuit base.
  • Bake the cheesecake:
    Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the filling is set and the edges are slightly golden brown.
    Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside to cool completely.
  • Make the chocolate ganache:
    In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just starts to simmer.
    Remove from the heat and add the chocolate chips.
    Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Pour the ganache:
    Pour the chocolate ganache over the cooled cheesecake, spreading it evenly to cover the top.
    Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until the ganache is set.
  • Cut and serve:
    Once set, use a sharp knife to cut the cheesecake into 12 generous slices.
    Serve chilled and enjoy!

Notes

Recipe Tips:
  • For a richer flavour, use full-fat cream cheese.
  • If you don't have Tim Tam biscuits, you can use any other chocolate sandwich biscuit.
  • To make the cheesecake filling even smoother, use a blender or food processor.
  • If you want a thicker ganache, add more chocolate chips.
  • For a more decadent dessert, top each slice of cheesecake with a fresh raspberry.

Recipe Variations:

  • Tim Tam Dream Cheesecake Slice:
    Add a layer of crushed Tim Tam biscuits between the cheesecake filling and the chocolate ganache.
  • White Chocolate Ganache Cheesecake Slice:
    Use white chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate chips for the ganache.
  • Strawberry Cheesecake Slice:
    Top the cheesecake with a layer of fresh strawberries before pouring the chocolate ganache.

  • Serve this cheesecake slice chilled, with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
