    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

You will need

  • 8 jars with lids


  1. Blitz the biscuits to crumbs in a food processor or in a bowl with the end of a rolling pin. Divide the biscuit crumbs between the jars.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk the cream cheese, cream, 5 tbsp icing sugar and the vanilla extract until softly whipped. Tip half the strawberries and the remaining sugar into another bowl and crush with a fork to a purée. Ripple the purée through the cream and divide between the jars. Top each cheesecake with remaining strawberries, secure the lids and chill until ready to pack up. Transport in a cooler bag.

Agree with suebryn tip. To serve 8 I'd double the cream cheese mixture. Also worth straining the purée a little to remove excess juice.

Lovely recipe! So simple to make and they look really effective - I didn't have jam jars but I used small dessert glasses. Definitely will make again.

What a gorgeous idea! Made this for our 'Sunday pudding' with fruit fresh from the garden. Very adaptable with any summer fruit/mix, & could easily be served after a BBQ or in smaller jars for a buffet.

I've made this twice halving the ingredients for 4 people and using low fat cream cheese. I am going to try substituting Strawberries for swirls of Orange Curd next. Very easy recipe

I tried this recipe yesterday. It was quite easy to prepare. HOWEVER please be mindful that if you are to make eight portions as advised you will have to use jars that are NO MORE than TWO INCHES high because it makes such a small amount!!! I would suggest that the recipe makes only FOUR normal portions. It was very tasty - I will try it with other fruit too ie raspberries, blueberries etc.
