Lingonberry & ginger cheesecake pots
- Preparation and cooking time
- plus chilling
- Serves 2
Layer up ginger snaps, a zesty cream cheese and lingonberry jam in glasses for these stunning individual desserts to finish off a Swedish supper for two
- 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.
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.
