INGREDIENTS:

  • 250g digestive biscuits


  • 100g butter, melted


  • 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract


  • 600g cream cheese


  • 100g icing sugar


  • 280ml double cream


  • Winter Berries


Note: To make it festive, add some of our festive Christmas Toppers such as the Glitter Holly.

METHOD

  1. Butter a 9" or 10" springform pan.
  2. Put 250g digestive biscuits in a food bag and crush with a rolling pin.
  3. Transfer into a bowl and pour over 100g melted butter. Mix thoroughly until the crumbs are completely coated.
  4. Tip into the prepared springform pan and press down into the base to create an even layer.
  5. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour to set firmly.
  6. To make the filling, place the soft cheese, icing sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
  7. Add the double cream and continue beating until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  8. Spoon it onto the biscuit base, working from the edges inwards and ensuring no air bubbles. Smooth the top of the mixture with the back of a spoon or with an icing smoother. Leave it in the fridge overnight to set.
  9. To serve, bring the cheesecake to room temperature about 30 minutes beforehand.
  10. To un-mould, place the pan on top of a can, release the sides of the tin and gradually pull downwards. Slice and serve.
  11. Place the cheesecake on a festive plate or board. Add your favorite winter berries, like blueberries, blackcurrants, cherries, and raspberries. Dust with a tablespoon of icing sugar to give the look of the snow. Garnish with some fresh herbs like mint or rosemary.

For an extra festive look, add some of our Christmas Icing Toppers from our bake-ware range.
