MINI CHEESE CAKE

Cheese cakes are one of my favourites... I love the sweet cheesy taste along with a bit of saltiness of digestive biscuits. I wanted this to be served seperately and decided to make in muffin moulds. It was bit time consuming as I had to line it with cling film so that I can unmould easily. But I was happy  the tiny image of cheese cake.
I found this recipe from nigella lawsons page and Immaediatly rushed to the kitchen as all the ingredients were readily available and it was simply easy to make. All you need is patience to let it sit in the fridge for about 4 hours to hold shape.
Ingredients:
  • digestive biscuits
  • butter unsalted
  • cream cheese at room temprature- 300 gms
  • double cream- 250 mls cold
  • icing sugar- 60 gms
  • lime juice- 1/2 tsp
  • vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Preparation:
In a food processor powder the biscuits along with butter.
spread this mixture onto a springform pan and spread the mixture evenly and flatten using your palm.
freeze for 10 mins, mean while, whip the cream along with icing sugar until stiff and form peaks. add in vanilla essence and squeeze 1/2 tsp lime. In a bowl simply stir the cheese very lightly. Fold this cheese into the cream and fold the mixture gently. Spoon the mixture over biscuit layer and refrigerate for 4 hours.. If you want you can treat yourself with your favourite topping.
