A delicious cheesecake that is perfect for any time!


For the filling

  • 300g Plain cream cheese
  • 200g Mascapone cheese
  • 50ml Double cream
  • 200ml Good quality white chocolate. Greens and Blacks works well
  • 250g Berries of your choice. Strawberries and Raspberries work well

For the shortbread base

  • 250g Shortbread biscuits
  • 70g Butter


  • STEP 1
    Melt butter in a saucepan on a low heat making sure it doesn't burn. Whiz up the shortbread biscuits in a food processor or break them up with a rolling pin. Mix butter and shortbread crumbs in a bowl and spoon into the base of a spring-form tin. Spread mixture evenly.
  • STEP 2
    Melt white chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of water on a low heat, stirring occasionally until smooth. Mix cream cheese, mascapone and double cream in a food processor until mixture is smooth. Slowly fold in the melted white chocolate.
  • STEP 3
    Cut up strawberries or the berries of your choice in small 1 - 2cm chunks. Add into the mixture and give a stir so that they are dispersed equally. Make sure to save a few berries for decoration.
  • STEP 4
    Pour mixture on top of the shortbread base in the spring-form tin. Smooth the top evenly and put a couple of whole of halved berries on the top for decoration. Leave in the fridge overnight to set and enjoy!
