About this recipe: A digestive base is the norm when making cheesecake, but these mini cheesecakes are made with something different. Experiment with your favourite biscuits, or stick to digestives if you wish! For a pretty presentation, you can top each cheesecake with a rosette of cream cheese or whipped cream right before serving. And if you aren't fond of cherry, any flavour fruit filling or compote will do.

  • 12 ginger nuts, vanilla shortbread or amaretti biscuits
  • 450g cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 600g cherry fruit filling
