French Cheesecake Recipe
This French cheesecake recipe comes from Alsace, where it is called Käsküeche. u00c2u00a0It is a light and not-too-sweet tart made from fromage blanc, beaten eggs and a little lemon. This recipe is traditionally prepared with a pie crust rather than the cookie crumb crust seen on many cheesecakes.
The key ingredient in this French cheesecake recipe is fromage blanc. This is a very popular dairy product here in France and it is becoming more readily available around the world. Don't confuse it with fromage frais,
a category of cheeses that includes fromage blanc, but other products as well. If you can't find fromage blanc, you can substitute some brands of quark.
