    Serves: 8 

    • 150g digestive biscuits
    • 50g butter
    • 300g cream cheese
    • 145g icing sugar
    • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
    • 450ml double cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 vanilla pod, scraped

    Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:1hr chilling  ›  Ready in:1hr20min 

    1. To start off, make the base by crushing the digestive biscuits up into a powder, melting the butter, and then mixing them together. Press into the bottom of a tin with a removable base, then put in the fridge to set.
    2. Now time for the cheesecake mixture: To start off, mix the cream cheese, lemon juice and icing sugar in a bowl until smooth.
    3. Next, whip the cream with the vanilla extract and vanilla seeds to stiff peaks.
    4. Now mix the whipped cream and the cream cheese mix together making sure that both mixes are fully combined.
    5. Take the digestive base out of the fridge and spread the cheesecake mix over the top. Chill in the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour.


    You can also use chocolate bourbons without the cream centre for the base; works just as well if not better. If you want you can take some strawberries and arrange them on top of cheesecake once you have spread the mix on the base.

    I made this last night for a family desert today and it was lush but I changed it to the honeycombe smash cheesecake like they do at Prezo just by adding a couple of broken up crunches to the topping went down a treat with everyone  -  03 Jan 2016
