RECIPE: ZESTY LIME CHEESECAKE WITH A CRUNCHY BISCUIT BASE

Hey Guys! Today I've got another recipe on the blog. Last week my cousin Jack came up from London to visit so I thought I'd do some baking with him. This post is his recipe for a Lime Cheesecake which I'm not going to lie smelt so nice when we made it. I don't really like cheesecakes but if you do then this recipe will be for you!

This recipe serves 8 people so all you have to do it and enjoy!

Ingredients

♥ 50g unsalted butter, cut into chunks
♥ 150g pack Chocolate Chip Cookies, crushed (I used double chocolate Maryland cookies)
♥ 135g pack Hartley's Lime Jelly, cut into small pieces
♥ ½ x 410g can Carnation Light Evaporated Milk, chilled
♥ 200g pack Half Fat Extra Light Soft Cheese
♥ 3 limes


Method
1. Line the base of a 20cm x 5cm round loose-bottomed sandwich tin with baking parchment.



2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the crushed biscuits. Press the mixture into the base of the prepared sandwich tin and chill.





3. In a bowl, dissolve the jelly in 100ml boiling water. Stir with a spoon then set aside to cool.



4. Whisk the evaporated milk in a large bowl using an electric or balloon whisk, until light and fluffy, and doubled in volume. Then whisk in the cream cheese until smooth and well combined.



5. Take the finely grated zest and juice of 2 of the limes. Finely slice the remaining lime and set aside. Add all the juice and half of the zest to the cream cheese mix then whisk in the jelly. (Keep the rest of the zest chilled.) Pour over the biscuit base and chill for 2 hours or until set. Decorate with the reserved lime zest and slices of lime.



(My cousin decided to decorate with chocolate which didn't quite go to plan - but it tasted good anyway!)

There you have it, it's as simple as that. An easy and tasty Lime Cheesecake with a Crunchy Biscuit Base. Let me know if you try this out and make sure you tag me on twitter :)
