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

  • 300g tub full-fat soft cheese
  • 200ml double cream

Method

  1. Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin to fine crumbs, add the melted butter and mix well. Tip the mix into a 20cm lined, loose-bottomed cake tin, smooth with the back of a spoon and put in the fridge for 30 mins.

  2. Melt 375g of the chocolate in a microwave or glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water, then allow to cool slightly.

  3. Take out 6 nice-looking strawberries and set aside. Blitz the remaining strawberries in a food processor until smooth, then add them to a bowl with the soft cheese and cream. Beat until really smooth and thick, then stir in the melted white chocolate. Pour on top of the biscuit base and smooth the top. Place in the fridge and chill overnight.

  4. Halve the reserved strawberries and place on top of the cheesecake. Melt the remaining 25g chocolate and drizzle over the top, then keep chilled until ready to serve.

I used Sainsbury's white cooking chocolate and the cheesecake tasted great - its not like you're eating the chocolate on its own.

FABULOUS!!! Like a beautiful ice cream cake.I didn't blitz the strawberries as much as it says so there were some lovely bits in it. I used half the amount of biscuit base again and a 23" tin.

Has anyone made this with low fat cream cheese, I have lots in the fridge and want to make this dessert at the weekend? Will it taste awful?

I loved this recipe and have made it many times. The cheesecake mixture is very generous. I have never had to use gelatine in it. I am looking forward to making it again but as a frozen dessert instead.

I've made this a few times now and the thing I love about it is you don't have to be a good cook to look like one. It's so easy to make and looks and tastes fab
