Ingredients

  • 200g gluten free coconut biscuits (can be bought from Morrisons)
  • 55g butter
  • 250g mascarpone cheese
  • 175ml condensed milk
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 limes
  • fresh fruit or chocolate shavings, to decorate

Method

    1. Put all the biscuits into a strong plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin until they look like fine breadcrumbs. Tip into a mixing bowl.
    2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and pour over the biscuit crumbs. Mix well and press into a 20cm loose-bottomed tin. Leave in the fridge to set for at least an hour.
    3. Put the mascarpone and condensed milk into a large bowl. Carefully grate the lemon and limes and and add the zest, then squeeze in the juice as well.
    4. Beat everything together until it is smooth and thick, then spread it over the biscuit base and chill in the fridge for at least another hour.
    5. Decorate the top with fresh fruit or make chocolate shavings by scraping a bar of chocolate with a vegetable peeler.

Super simple and very tasty. Made one at Easter and it went down a treat. Just made another ready for Christmas. Freezes well.

Easy-peasy. Delicious and had to make two in one weekend as they were soooo popular. Used value digestives and they were fine.

This recipe is just what I am looking for, I intend to make it for Christmas Day especially for my pregnant daughter-in-law who cannot have raw eggs, wheat/gluten. I am using Dove Farm lemon biscuits. Thank you

Very easy to make and follow the recipe, and extremely yummy! Made it for a friend's BBQ this summer and it disappeared very quickly! :)
