Ingredients

  • 50g full-fat cream cheese
  • 75ml double cream
  • grated zest 0.5 orange
  • 4 tbsp lingonberry jam (we used Felix wild lingonberry jam) or cranberry jelly, plus a little extra to serve
  • 8 Swedish pepparkakor ginger snaps or 4 ginger nuts , crushed, plus 1 extra to serve
  • knob of butter , melted

Method

  • STEP 1

    Whip the cream cheese, double cream and orange zest in a medium bowl until thick and holding its shape. Be careful not to overwhip or the cream cheese will become watery. Gently ripple through the lingonberry jam.

  • STEP 2

    Mix together the crushed biscuits and butter, and spoon into 2 glasses. Divide the lingonberry mixture between the glasses and chill until needed – at least 30 mins. The cheesecakes can be made up to this point the day before.

  • STEP 3

    To serve, mix a little of the jam with 1 tsp water and drizzle over the cheesecakes. Crumble the remaining biscuit and sprinkle on top.

RECIPE TIPS
LINGONBERRIES

Tart lingonberries grow wild all over Scandinavia, where they are used in jam to serve with meatballs and game. The jam is also delicious in puddings like these gorgeous cheesecake pots, served with spiced ginger snap biscuits.
