yes, base needs to chill or the filling will just heat through and go mushy. Base won't be biscuity enough otherwise. put it in the fridge - shouldn't need very long - I'd say an hour or so. The butter needs to solidify
Oh no! I only have an hour to make the whole thing (Children's cookery club at school!) They are making a fruit pizza and need some sort of base. I really do not want to buy the ready made pastry ones.
Well, I decided to make the base the night before (well bases x10!) Children then made really lovely fruit pizza's to take home. I was amazed at how creative some children are! (the pizzas are more like a cheese cake) Will definitely use the recipe again.
8 inch biscuit base (25g of melted butter, 100g of crushed digestive biscuits chill for at least ½ an hour) 200g low fat cream cheese 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice 1 - 2 tablespoons of milk Toppings: A mixture of chopped fresh fruit. Method To prepare the filling: Beat together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice. Add just enough milk to the mix to make it spreadable onto the crust. Spread the cream cheese mixture with a back of a spoon. Spread to the edge of the crust making sure that it is all nice and even. Place the fresh fruit onto the cream cheese mixture in a pattern. Refrigerate the pizza for at least an hour
