Lemon and Raspberry CHeesecake by Katie at Home

Good morning, how are you today? Today I am inviting you to make this really easy dessert, it will wow your geusts and will only take about 20mins to do.

What a fantastic day yesterday was for the first day of ‘the holidays’, here is to many more!

The weekend just gone brought some freinds over for dinner on Saturday evening , always a lovely way to spend an evening, we even had stuffed red peppers,  for dessert we had an old favourite with a little twist, I did a variation of a well loved cheesecake – Lemon and Raspberry Cheesecake. Having been fruit picking I had loads of raspberries, the intention being to make jam, but I dont this that is going to happen this time around! Will need to go again.

and so to . . Lemon and Raspberry Cheesecake, this is a really easy dessert to wow your geusts and will only take about 20mins to do – you will then need to leave it to set.

What you will need . . .

  • 200g Deigestive Biscuits
  • 100g Butter
  • 200g Cream Cheese
  • 150ml Double Cream
  • 75g (1 heaped dessert spoon) Icing Sugar
  • 1-2 Lemons Juice and Rind

You can use either a greased 6 or 8 inch (15 – 20cm)round tin, the smaller tin will give you a ‘deeper’ cheesecake. To make taking it out easier use a flan tin with a removeable bottom

  1. Melt the butter and crush the biscuits into small biscuit crumbs add together, mix well and press into the tin, pop into the fridge
  2. In a bowl add your cream cheese, cream and whisk until just thick
  3. Now add the lemon juice, rind and icing sugar and whisk again the mix should now be thick
  4. Spread the cheese mix on top of your biscuit base and leave to set (about 2 hours)
  5. Just before serving add the raspberries on top and dust with some icing sugar

. . and there we are done  – quick, easy, no cooking required.

Variations that I have tried are – to the base and or  the cream mix

– add some small lumps of ginger, or make your base using crunched up ginger nuts

– add broken chocolate

– To the cream mix you can add the fruit strawberries, sultanas

Have fun whatever you do.

So here we are all on holiday again, it seems no time since last summer, I hope tha sun is shining where you are. Not sure what we are are doing to day – how about you what are you to in the hoidays?
