I’m a sucker for easy recipes and cheesecake (touche pussy cat!) so, when Irina told me about this cheesecake recipe made by the brilliant people from My backing addiction , i said Hell yeah! You know, if you are a beginner in kitchen, you don’t want a million steps to follow to eat something sweet. And i’m not saying it’s not worth it, it’s just that sometimes you are lazy like a daisy, well for those days, you have this dessert.
Serves: 6-8 glasses
- Digestive biscuits – 3 packages (crumbs)
- Sugar – 1 tbs. (you can skip this spoon)
- Butter – 3 tbs (melted)
- Lemon zest – 1 tsp.
- Sugar 2/3 cup
- Cream cheese – 1 package
- Vanilla extract – 1 tsp.
- Lemon juice – 2 tsp.
- Fresh Whipped cream – 200 ml
- Strawberries – 1 cup – mashed
- Blueberries 1/2 cup – mashed
In a large bowl mix the crumbs with sugar and butter. It’s a messy job, but i think it’s better if you’ll use your hands to mix the crumbs with the butter. Set aside.
To make the cream mix the lemon zest with sugar. Add the cheese and mix everything with a mixer until nice and smooth. Then add vanilla and lemon juice – mix. The final step is to add fresh whipped cream and mashed fruits and mix to combine them nicely.
Oh, sorry, this is the final step, i lied… Mwahahaha *evil laugh*! I kid!
Put the crumbs as a first layer, 1-2 cm thick (it depends on how tall your cups are) and then fill with cream. Add a final biscuits layer (optional) and some fruits.
Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 2 hours before serving (you didn’t really thought, that you’ll serve it right away, didn’t you?) Or you can just dig in it, like i did, but i’m warning you, it has a certain harshness – but not necessarily in a bad way.
