  • In a food processor, pulse the gingersnaps with the sugar to fine crumbs. Add the butter and process until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Press the crumbs into the rings or ramekins in an even layer. Bake in the center of the oven for 12 minutes, until fragrant. Reduce the oven temperature to 300°.

meanwhile, make the filling
  • In a bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and goat cheese until smooth. Beat in the sugar at medium speed until creamy, 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs and yolks, one at a time, until smooth, then beat in the cornstarch and rosemary.

  • Pour the filling into the molds or ramekins and bake for 25 minutes, until just set. Let cool, then refrigerate until chilled, 1 hour.

  • To serve, unmold the cheese cakes onto dessert plates and drizzle with honey.

Suggested Pairing

Honeyed, orange marmalade-scented Sauternes.
