From My Kitchen To Yours – keeping our heritage alive since 2011!
One of the first cheesecake recipes I learned to make as a teenager many years ago and it is still one of my favourites to make and share with my family.
1 large egg
250g cream cheese
24 tennis biscuits
1 cup fresh cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
15 glacé cherries
Flake chocolate to decorate
In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar together.
Add the egg, vanilla essence and cream cheese.
Place 3 rows of tennis biscuits on a piece of foil.
Place rows length wise side by side.
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the biscuits.
Add a row of cherries down the centre.
Lift the foil from sides of the pyramid leaving the center biscuits to form a base, pinch the two sides together to close.
Leave to set in the fridge overnight.
Before serving, spread the cake with whipped cream and garnish with the chocolate.
You can replace the egg with one tablespoon apple sauce.
