Ingredients

  • For the filling
  • 300g Plain cream cheese
  • 200g Mascapone cheese
  • 50ml Double cream
  • 200ml Good quality white chocolate. Greens and Blacks works well
  • 250g Berries of your choice. Strawberries and Raspberries work well
  • For the shortbread base
  • 250g Shortbread biscuits
  • 70g Butter

Method

    1. Melt butter in a saucepan on a low heat making sure it doesn't burn. Whiz up the shortbread biscuits in a food processor or break them up with a rolling pin. Mix butter and shortbread crumbs in a bowl and spoon into the base of a spring-form tin. Spread mixture evenly.
    2. Melt white chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of water on a low heat, stirring occasionally until smooth. Mix cream cheese, mascapone and double cream in a food processor until mixture is smooth. Slowly fold in the melted white chocolate.
    3. Cut up strawberries or the berries of your choice in small 1 - 2cm chunks. Add into the mixture and give a stir so that they are dispersed equally. Make sure to save a few berries for decoration.
    4. Pour mixture on top of the shortbread base in the spring-form tin. Smooth the top evenly and put a couple of whole of halved berries on the top for decoration. Leave in the fridge overnight to set and enjoy!

If you are unable to find mascapone cheese then use 250ml of double cream instead just 50ml and 300g of white chocolate!
