How to Make Dark Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake

  • For browned butter biscuit:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius. Sift the flour in a large bowl, add the butter and work with your fingers until it resembles a bread crumbs, then add the sugar, bring the dough together.
  • Grease and line a baking sheet. Take small balls out of the dough, roll it between your fingers, flatten it and place it in the baking tray.
