Ingredients

  • 3/4 large pack digestive biscuits
  • 90g butter
  • 60g sugar
  • 360g full fat cream cheese
  • 160ml double cream, lightly whipped
  • Icing sugar to taste
  • 1 lime
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2tbs Belvoir Elderflower Cordial

Method

    1. Place the digestive biscuits in a large plastic bag. Hold one end of the bag and using a rolling pin, crush until they resemble fine breadcrumbs.
    2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and add the crushed biscuits and sugar until they are fully combined.
    3. Press the biscuit mixture firmly into an 8” round tin with a lift up base and place in the fridge to set.
    4. Wash the lemon and grate the skin using a fine grater or use a zester. Place this zest together with the cream cheese, icing sugar and lime juice in a food processor and mix well.
    5. Then slowly add the cream and elderflower cordial until it is a smooth thick paste.
    6. Spread this mixture on the biscuit base and refrigerate.
    7. Just before serving, sprinkle the cheesecake with the zest of the lime.
