Dates and Cardamom Cheesecake
A New York-style baked cheesecake infused with the flavours of the Middle East. Here floral, citrus notes from the cardamom cut through the dense, smooth richness of the exceptionally creamy filling perfectly, while the dates provide a sweet, toffee-like taste. Do note that leaving this dates and cardamon cheesecake to cool completely before removing from the tin is essential.

Mix the biscuits with the butter together, then spread them in the cheesecake mold and refrigerate it while preparing the cheese layer.
Using the cake mixer, whip the cream cheese, Velor cream, sugar and date spread until all the ingredients are mixed together, and add the eggs, one after the other.
Rub the soaked dates and knead it a little with your hand, and then add it to the cheese layer. Whip them until they turn into small pieces, and then add the cardamom and the saffron soaked in rose water, and stir well.
Take out the cheesecake mold from the refrigerator and spread the cheese mixture over the biscuit layer.
In a water bath on low heat, bake the cheesecake for 50 minutes, then remove it from the bath and let it cool in the room temperature and then refrigerate it to cool a little.
