Italian Cheese Kuchen

I told you that in Chile there’s a long tradition of German pies or Kuchen. Well, in Southern Chile there’s a cheesecake called “Kuchen de quesillo” in Spanish, which is the Chilean version of the German Käsekuchen. So, even if in North America you really know how to make luscious cheesecakes, I wanted to create my own version of the German-Chilean cheesecake, adding that extra Italian touch I love. What you finally get is an Italian-German-Chilean cheesecake, or Italian-American-Chilean Käsekuchen… or Italian Cheese Kuchen… or put simply, a scrumptious treat!

1 graham cracker pie shell
8 oz mascarpone cheese
½ cup blackberry jam
1 can condensed milk
2 egg yolks
1 egg

In a bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese until creamy. Add the condensed milk and stir well. Add the egg and the egg yolks. Stir until everything is incorporated. Add the blackberry jam and give a quick stir. Pour the mixture into the crust. Bake in a 350F preheated oven for about 45 minutes. Broil for a couple of minutes until the top of the Kuchen turns golden brown. Enjoy!
