Strawberry Cheesecake

30 08 2014

Whilst on maternity leave I am determined to pick up some new skills. I have never ever made any home made deserts before so I thought I would give it a go.

It turns out that FOMB (father of my boy) loves strawberry cheesecake so I got a recipe from my Mum and gave it a go.

The results were fab and I was pretty proud of my first attempt pictures above.

If you want to try to make your own version of this cheesecake the ingredients are listed below:

Ingredients

8 ozs crushed digestive biscuits

4 ozs margarine

1tsp cinnamon – optional

1 large can evaporated milk

1 lemon jelly – flavour of your choice

¼ pint boiling water

8 ozs cream cheese (e.g. philidelphia)

4 ozs caster sugar

Lemon colouring

Lemon flavouring

Once you have all your ingredients ready just follow the simple steps below:

Base

1/ Grease 7” loose bottomed cake tin in a dish

2/ Place digestive biscuits in a sandwich bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

3/ Melt margarine in a pan then add the crushed biscuits.

4/ Spice mixture – optional

5/ Press mixture into the tin and place in the fridge while preparing the top.

Topping

1/ Beat evaporated milk until thick and creamy and leave to one side.

2/ Dissolve jelly in the boiling water. Alternatively dissolve in microwave without adding water.

3/ In another bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar together. Add all ingredients and beat together. Add flavouring and colouring at this point if desired.

4/ pour mixture over the base and leave for minimum of 4 hours to set.

5/ Decorate with fresh cream, fruit, grapes, flake or even nuts.

 

I made some changes such as using strawberry jelly instead of lemon and I left out the colouring and lemon flavouring.
