We all had tasters and the cheesecake was so easy and delicious, the recipe is given below.
150g Digestive biscuits- crushed
75g butter - melted
2 lemons - grated rind and juice
100g caster sugar
350g cram cheese - full fat philadelphia
350 curd cheese - philadelphia light
142ml double cream
strawberries to decorate.
1. Mix the melted butter and digestive biscuits and use to line the base of a serving dish (She used a metal flan ring straight onto the serving dish, with the mix pressed down well, and no problem about getting it out of the tin later. )
2. Gently mix the two cheeses, add the double cream, sugar and juice and rind of the lemon.
3. Whisk slowly until everything is combined, then beat faster until a soft peak stage is reached.
4. Spread over the digestive biscuit base and chill.
5. Top with fruit.
The MAGIC thing was that the cheese mixture held its shape in less than 2 minutes. She ran a clean knife around the inside of the metal ring, and removed the ring. It did not collapse! It tasted delicious! I imagine if it had been left to chill overnight it would have firmed up even more.
Thank you Julia.
