One of my favourites "Cheesecake" simply decadent

Simple and quick Strawberry cheesecake no baking necessary

A cheesecake, generally made with soft cream cheeses and biscuits, is just the thing for a special occasion. Follow this quick and easy recipe to make a simple but delicious cheesecake – without even having to bake!

Ingredients – cake:

1 packet Tennis biscuits
1 tbsp butter
1 tin condensed milk
1 tub fat-free cottage cheese 250g
½ cup lemon juice

Ingredients – topping:

1 tub fresh strawberries and 1 tbsp icing sugar OR a tin of fruit jam (such as raspberry) OR a tin of passionfruit /granadilla pulp

  1. Crush the biscuits and mix with the butter to use as a base. Press into a shallow dish.
  2. Mix the condensed milk, cottage cheese and lemon juice together, and pour over the biscuit base.
  3. Pick your favourite topping; heat up a tin of jam over a stove until it’s runny and glaze it over your cake, or decorate it with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of icing sugar. Alternatively, glaze a tin of passion fruit / granadilla pulp over your cake.
  4. Let stand in fridge for at least two hours before serving, and keep any left overs in the fridge as well.
