Cheesecake mavens - I need help!

I made a lovely no-bake cheesecake last year, and I want to make it again. But for some unfathomable reason I have no quantities on my recipe - no idea why confused

Anyone have any idea what the quantities might be?

Here's the recipe:

Melt the butter.
Place a layer of ginger biscuits in a springform or loose-base cake tin.
Carefully pour a teaspoon of melted butter on each biscuit.
Repeat, so that the biscuits overlap.
Zest and juice the lemons.
Beat the mascarpone and the cream cheese together.
Beat the sugar into the cheese mixture.
Beat the lemon juice and vanilla into the cheese mixture.
Put cheese mixture on top of the biscuit base and tap or smooth to level.
Sprinkle lemon zest on top.
Leave to set.

I have a similar recipe and quantities are as follows

200g biscuits
75g butter
400g full fat cream cheese at room temperature
300g mascarpone at room temperature
200g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 tbsp lemon juice

Then instructions for the base are a bit different in mine - i.e. mine is the standard mix crushed biscuits with melted butter method - but i imagine you will be able to tell if it needs a bit more butter fairly easily
