  • 30 Maria cookies, finely crushed
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 piece cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 cup rice, soaked in water for 15 minutes and drained

Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a springform pan with removeable bottom with foil. Combine sugar, ground cookies and butter in a small bowl; press into a thin layer on bottom of prepared pan.

Step 2

Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add cinnamon and rice. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes or until rice is soft. Drain the rice and cinnamon and place in a blender. Add sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs and cream cheese; cover. Blend until smooth. Pour over cookie base.

Step 3

Fill a large roasting pan to about 1-inch depth with warm water. Place springform pan into water bath. Bake for 1 hour. Let cool (cheesecake may appear soft but will firm up when cooling); remove from bath and refrigerate for 2 hours. Unmold and serve.
