  • 130g icing sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 200ml double cream
  • Fresh blueberries and strawberries for decorating

  • Tip this mixture into your prepared tin, and press it down firmly into a flat disc.


  • Chill the biscuit base in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.


  • To make the cheesecake, mix together your cream cheese, icing sugar, vanilla and lemon juice until smooth.


  • Whip the cream into stiff peaks (taking care not to over-whip it, as it can split!) and then stir it into the cheese mixture.


  • Tip this lovely cheesecake mixture onto the chilled, firm biscuit base and smooth it out.
