Method

  1. Crush the biscuits into large crumbs and divide between 4 ramekins or small glasses.
  2. In a bowl, beat the cheese with the sugar and vanilla then add 4 tbsp of the sauce and beat until mostly incorporated but still streaked slightly. Carefully spoon over the biscuits and smooth the top.
  3. Spoon the rest of the caramel over the top and use a teaspoon to swirl the top of the cheese layer with the caramel. Set in the fridge for at least 2 hours but up to 2 days before serving.

Went to make this yesterday for supper with friends, only to discover that the box of amaretti I had were of the soft variety so improvised with digestive biscuits crumbs bound together with a bit of maple syrup. I also added salt to the caramel that I used for the topping and it went down a storm!

Waitrose let me down and didn't have any amaretti biscuits so I have botched it with trifle sponge fingers and ground almonds... we will see how it turns out!! ... I must commend their Caramel dipping sauce though, seriously good stuff!!

Heather, you could try using gingernut biscuits instead - if you like them!

Amaretti biscuits are one of the very few things I dislike. Any suggestions of an alternative?
