  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp redcurrant jelly

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/gas 4/fan 160C. Line a baking sheet with non-stick parchment. Slowly bring the butter, cream and sugar to the boil, stirring. Take off the heat and stir in the nuts and flour. Spread half the mixture in a 20cm round on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes on the sheet and then transfer to a rack to go brittle and crispy. Repeat with the other half.

  2. Beat the cheese until softened, and then gradually beat in the milk, lemon and lightly whipped cream. Chill for 2-4 hours until softly set.

  3. Squash four strawberries through a sieve into a pan. Add the sugar and redcurrant jelly and heat gently, stirring to dissolve. Boil for 2-3 minutes to make a syrup, then cool.

  4. Slice the remaining strawberries. Break the biscuit into shards. Layer the cheese mixture, strawberries, syrup and biscuit in glasses, reserving a few pieces. Chill (up to 2 hours ahead). To serve, top with the remaining biscuit.

Very nice but extremely rich so don't make your serving glass too large. I cooked the biscuit for much longer than 12 minutes and they were still soft rather than crunchy in the middle. I removed the crunchy bits off the edges and put back in the oven to crunch up the middle.
