Ingredients

  • 100g digestive biscuits, or cookies, crushed into fine crumbs
  • 50g demerara sugar
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 500g full-fat cream cheese
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod, sliced lengthways, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200ml double cream

Method

    1. In a mixing bowl, mix together the biscuit crumbs and Demerara sugar. Add in the melted butter and mix well.
    2. Spoon the biscuit mixture into a 20cm spring-form cake tin lined with baking parchment. Use a metal spoon to press the biscuit crumbs down firmly and evenly. Chill in the refrigerator until set.
    3. In a large mixing bowl, using a whisk or a wooden spoon, beat together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla pod seeds or vanilla extract until well mixed.
    4. Fold in the double cream, mixing well.
    5. Spoon the cream mixture over the chilled biscuit base, making sure that there are no air bubbles. Smooth the top of the cheesecake with a palette knife or metal spoon.
    6. Chill the cheesecake in the refrigerator for 1 hour until set.
    7. To serve, remove from the cake tin and cut into slices.
