DIRECTIONS

  • Combine ground vanilla wafers and clarified butter.
  • When the mixture is the consistency of moist cornmeal, you've added just the right amount of butter.
  • When squeezed it should hold together easily.
  • Rub inside of a springform pan with butter.
  • Dust sides and bottom with flour, discarding any powder that does not stick.
  • Using your hands, tap down the butter-wafer mixture forming a short wall up the side.
  • When the mixture is even and all holes are filled in, bake the crust at 300 F for just a few minutes to set the shell.
  • For the filling, beat cream cheese until smooth.
  • With machine running, add granulated sugar, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides.
  • With the machine running, add the eggs, one at a time.
  • Add the vanilla extract and sour cream.
  • Pour batter into prepared, cooled pan and level off with a spatula.
  • Bake at 300 F for 40 minutes.
  • For the sauce, in a small sauté pan, cook brown sugar and butter slowly until the mixture liquefies.
  • Add lemon juice, banana liqueur, orange juice and cinnamon.
  • Bring mixture to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes and cool.
  • In another sauté pan, sauté banana slices in sizzling butter.
  • When browned on one side, douse the fruit with some of the Fosters sauce.
  • Cut cooled cheesecake into 8 portions.
  • Top with Fosters sauce.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and add a sprig of mint.
