Basque Burnt Cheesecake and how it’s done

This cheesecake is the alter ego to the classic New York-style cheesecake with a cookie crust pressed in.

Inspired by a Basque version, this is the cheesecake that at high heat wants to get burnt, cracked, and fried.

That also means that this is the cheesecake that cannot be messed up.
