About this recipe: This recipe is for a standard plain cheesecake, with no baking required - just refrigeration. Once you have your basic cheesecake you can follow some of my tips or add your own extra toppings to make it more special. Just add fruit, chocolate or whatever!
I use low-fat quark as my cream cheese, but you can use any cream cheese you fancy! :)
If using fruit, juice some of the fruit and stir in at step 7 to make the cheesecake extra fruity!
Way too much butter, my base was swimming in fat. Next time I'll start with 100g butter and see how it goes from there. I had to rescue by adding more biscuits, but this meant the proportion of base to topping was out. My biscuits were very sweet, so I countered this by adding some coffee extract. I also used quark (for the first time) it's very nice; tastes more like yoghurt and is a little bit tart so I added a dash of vanilla extract. - 01 Jan 2013
Perfect !! Ideal for a dad and his daughter to make simply to surprise Mum. 'Dad friendly' easy to follow and an absolute doddle to make. Like it so much we are making another one today for nanna, we put a little jam in with the topping mix and then halved strawberries in a circle around the outside. I guess the buttery base is a matter of preference and we all loved it just as it was. We have worked out the weightwatchers points for this recipe and the result was ... who cares !! :O) - 11 Aug 2013
I topped the base with nutella and added crushed up flake, white chocolate buttons and milk chocolate buttons to the cream cheese. I topped it with more chocolate buttons and maltesers. - 25 Mar 2016
