  • 100g amaretti biscuit (about 20)
  • 400g soft cheese
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp caramel sauce, we used Carnation, beaten until smooth



    This is white, granulated sugar melted until it browns, after which it sets clear and hard when…


  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!

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?

Which brand and type of cheese should I use for this recipe?

Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. Any soft cheese would be suitable for this recipe, either a supermarket brand or, for example, Philadelphia. Enjoy the recipe!

Best wishes, BBC Good Food team

Add sugar a bit at a time to taste - you might not need it all - 30g was fine for us, remember you are adding sweet caramel sauce too.

Also try using other biscuits (ginger nuts are good), and jam, curd or chocolate sauce instead of caramel.
