Hope you are enjoying the glorious British weather! It has been amazing, I love the UK when we have weather like this.
As it was such a lovely day I decided to make a citrus desert, as nothing goes better with the sun than something oozing with lemon flavour.
I decided to go and stalk the Mary Berry recipe archives and found this delicious recipe and thought id give it a go!
Lets get cracking.....
- 10 digestive or graham cracker biscuits
- 50g of melted butter
- 397g full fat condensed milk (sweetened)
- 175g full fat cream cheese
- 300ml of double cream
- 1 1/2 limes
- 2 large lemons
- 20cm spring form tin.
To make the base
Using a food processor blitz the biscuits into crumbs, melt the butter in the microwave and add to the food processor until the mixture begin to come together.
Press the biscuit mixture into the tin and chill for 30 minutes.
whilst chilling make the filling.... (Poet and I don't know it)
Using either a balloon whisk or electric whisk blend the condensed milk, 150ml of cream, cream cheese, and the zest of the lemon and limes in a chilled bowl until smooth. gradually add the lime and lemon juice and beat until thickened (2-3 minutes). Smooth the mixture over your biscuit base and chill for 6 hours.
Once ready to serve whip up the remaining 150 ml of cream and pipe onto the top of your cheesecake. I used the rest of the lime to decorate... you don't have to!
It really was YUM, Let me know if you give this a whirl! I hope you enjoy it!
