  • Meanwhile, mix granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a medium, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until sugar dissolves for 13 min. (stir the first 3 min) When ready, remove from heat and carefully stir in butter and milk. Place pan over medium-high heat until caramelized sugar melts. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute.
  • Cool caramel to room temperature then cover and put in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Take cheesecakes out of the oven. Once cool, the middle will slightly fall and this is the perfect indent for the caramel.
