About this recipe: These delicious, zesty little lemon curd cheesecakes on a crumbly shortbread base make a simple but attractive no-cook dessert. Topped with strawberries, they look almost too good to eat. Delicious!
*For cream cheese, use mascarpone, curd cheese or quark. *Try different biscuit bases, such as chocolate chip shortbread or cookies, or crunchy oat biscuits.
Black forest cheesecakes: Cut a bought plain chocolate cake into slices about 1 to 2cm thick and stamp out eight circles using a 5 to 7.5cm cutter. Moisten with a little kirsch and top with a little black cherry conserve. Make the cheesecake mixture as step 2, using 1 tablespoon lemon juice and the zest. Spread over the cake circles and top with more conserve. Decorate with bought chocolate shapes and serve with single cream to pour over.
