For the Crust:
1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons melted butterPreheat oven to 325F. Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square pan with nonstick foil, leaving an overhang. Stir all ingredients together and press onto the bottom of the pan. Bake 10 mins and cool on a rack 5 mins.
For the Filling:
1 cup dulce delche (I made mine by pouring one 14-oz can of sweetened condensed milk into an 8x8 pyrex, cover with foil, place in larger pan filled halfway with water and bake at 425 for approx 60-90 mins. Cool)
16 ounces room temp cream cheese
½ cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pour the dulce onto the cooled crust and spread. Put in fridge while making the filling. For the filling: beat cream cheese and sugar to blend. Add eggs and vanilla. Pour filling over the dulce de leche layer evenly, and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the center only slightly jiggles. Remove and cool completely. Chill in fridge at least 3 hours.
For the Glaze:
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
½ stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
Microwave all until smooth. Pour over the cheesecake evenly and chill at least 30 mins. Cut into squares!
