Cheat’s “Cheesecake” with Strawberries

  • RECIPE MAKES: 4 ”cheesecakes”
  • PREP TIME: 15min
  • COOK TIME: Proof time 30min | Cook time 35min
Step 1

Line 4 ramekin dishes with cling film and place in freezer to chill.  

Step 2

For the strawberries, place into a bowl with icing sugar, and juice.  Stir well, cover with cling film, set aside, 15-20min.  

Step 3

Place cream cheese and icing sugar into a bowl, add lemon juice and vanilla, mix until smooth.  

In a second bowl, place cream.  Using electric beaters, whisk until soft peaks form. Fold this into the cream cheese mixture.  

Step 4

Remove ramekins from freezer, fill each with cream cheese mixture, level surfaces with a spatula.  

Place back into refrigerator.  

Step 5

Place biscuits into a plastic bag, and crush with a rolling pin.  

Step 6

Heat a small, non-stick pan to low, add sugar.  Once melted, and starting to thicken, add butter, and gently shake pan to combine with sugar to form a caramel. Add biscuit crumbs, shake pan to coat in caramel. Pour mixture onto a plate, place in refrigerator, 5min., until cool. Once cool, crumble into pieces.  

Step 7

Remove ramekins from refrigerator, turn “cheesecakes” onto plates, discard film. Spoon strawberries over top, and around cakes, and sprinkle biscuit “base” over the top. Serve garnished with fresh mint.
