Lemony Cheesecake Heaven
Mmmmm majestic, delectable, thick, creamy & luscious, but easy peasy literally lemon squeezy ;-D
130g Biscuits (Morning coffee style)
75g Butter, softened
250ml Dbl or Whipping cream Whisked
500g tub Mascarpone cheese
200g Icing sugar or more to taste
1 Lemon zest & juice
Bash or whizz the biscuits until they are like bread crumbs. Then mix in the butter until, fully incorporated.
Press this into a spring form tin or a loose bottomed cake tin & refrigerate.
In a bowl whisk the cream till it holds its shape.
In a larger bowl mix together the Mascarpone, sugar, lemon zest & juice. taste the mixture & add more icing sugar if needed, when blended together fold in the cream.
Spread this on top of the biscuit base & leave in the fridge over night.
Remove from the tin but leave it on the base
Serve this with whipped cream or drizzle with a fruit compote if you like but it is just as good on its own with just the tangy lemon taste.
