Hey Rumpel, Ive got the BEST cheescake recipe, it is easy and very yummy and is a no bake cheesecake so no cooking required. Everyone is always asking me to make them and they look like they take a lot of effort to make triple bonus x
175g Digestive biscuits (i use cheapy ones) 75g Unsalted butter 400g low fat cream cheese (philadelphia or shop own is fine) 100g icing sugar (you can use castor sugar, if sifted) 300ml double cream splash of vanilla essence 2x 298g tins mandarins 1 x orange
For the base: Crush the biscuits and melt the butter, mix together and put into a loose bottom round tin, press down with a potato masher or something similar. Place in fridge until cold.
For the filling: Mix the cream cheese and sugar and mix until blended, add the splash of vanilla essence and orange juice and zest, mix well. In a seperate bowl, whisk the double cream unil the cream is firm, then mix with the cream cheese mixture, if it is now slightly too runny you can mix it again once its all blended. Then spread on top of biscuit base and set in the fridge. Take out of the tin and decorate with the drained mandarin segments.
You can substitue the fruit for different flavoured cheescake.
Hmm sounds delicious and really healthy . I'm having friends around for dinner on Saturday - a curry so don't want a pud that is too heavy. never made cheesecake before but always mean't to try it. Ta very much. Just hope this stupid rotten cold goes away so I can fully appreciate it .
I made 12 deserts to take for Christmas dinner last year (my contribution) and there were 15 of us - they fought over the white chocolate cheesecake and the chocolate bannoffee pie!!!
the white chocolate cheesecake is made here all the time - for friends/work/cafe etc I even made it on Halloween last year and used a fudge icing pen to do a cobweb round the top - the adults wouldn't let the kids have any lol
