Easy peasy
Pack of biscuits, crushed with bit of melted butter, made into base.

Then we use 1 tub of marscapone (have done this with tub of Philly as well) and 1 of condensed milk (I use the lighter version) then add the juice and grated rind of two lemons, whack it on the base and leave in fridge for an hour or so

I do it with just mascarpone, lemon juice and zest and icing sugar. Very small amount of icing sugar but haven't got recipe to hand.

MrKrabs Sat 20-Jun-09 17:20:06

Right I have made the base.

Mascarpone or Philly sounds much nicer than cottage cheese imo. Surely cottage cheese would be a bit lumpy, rather than silky and luscious?

How did your party go? Or has it not happened yet?

Can I has cheesecake? Plz.

This one is dead easy and scrumptious

Lemon Cheesecake


8 oz Digestive Biscuits
3oz Butter
1 oz Sugar


1 pkt lime or lemon Jelly
6oz cup boiling water
8 oz Philadelphia Cheese
4 oz Caster Sugar
Half pint whipping cream
3 tblspoons lemon juice


Crush biscuits by hand (if you use a food processor, the biscuits become too fine resulting in a very hard base).
Melt butter and sugar and add biscuits.
Press base into loose bottomed greased tin.

Disolve jelly in boiling water. Add lemon juice and allow to cool.
Whip cream until standing in peaks.
In separate bowl mix cream cheese and sugar together.
Add cooled jelly gradually to cheese and mix well.
Carefully fold in whipped cream.

When biscuit base is cold and firm, pour topping into tin over it and chill overnight.

DD made an easy citrus cheese cake this afternoon. She changed the digestives for gingernuts. Very tasty it was too!

BecauseImWorthIt Sun 21-Jun-09 21:51:56

I make one which is Philadelphia, condensed mlk and the juice of a lemon. It's in the recipe section on here. Easy, peasy and very yummy.

MrKrabs Sun 21-Jun-09 21:55:54

yes that was where i got my inspiration
cept i had already bought marscarpone

ja9 Sun 21-Jun-09 21:56:51

easier still but not technically a cheesecake (although i call it that)

gingernut or digestive base. double cream whipped up thick . add small tin of condensed milk and juice of 3 lemons. whip together. leave in fridge to set.

honestly, it is divine!

This is my favourite non-bake cheese cake adapted from the old JS TV adverts circa. 1989:

200g pack ginger snap biscuits, crushed
50g butter, melted
500g marscapone cheese
40g icing sugar, sifted
Finley grated zest and juice of 2 limes

Preparation time: 15mins plus 30mins chilling
Serves 6-8

1. Mix together the crushed biscuits and melted butter and press into the base of an 18 cm spring sided, or loose bottomed cake tin.
2. Place the marscapone, icing sugar, lime zest and juice in a bowl and beat together. Spread over the biscuit base. Chill for 30 mins.

There are lots of delicious alternative ingredients for this recipe:
- Use one orange or lemon instead of limes
- Try using digestives, rustics or any favourite biscuits for the base
- For extra flavour, add 1 -2 tablespoons fruit liqueur
- Top with grated or melted chocolate drizzled over top. Alternatively, decorate with lime slices, zest or fresh fruit
