Elderflower cheesecake



img_7424Elderflower is something very Swedish (from where my family originates), and one of my favorite flavors during summer. It’s fresh and just wonderful. This cheesecake was the desert during a family dinner, and there was barley anything left after… It tastes delicious; it’s a little sour and a perfect ending to a dinner. It has the perfect level in between sweet and sour. PS Elderflower concentrate can be bought at IKEA.



12 digestive biscuits

100 g butter / 9/10 of one stick butter


4 Gelatin leaves

250grams / 8.8 ounces of curd
