Mini Lemon & Strawberry Cheesecakes

 
 
I went through a stage where I didn't like cheesecake. In school, we often had to make the same thing every week and change different ingredients every time to assess for our coursework. One of those things was cheesecake. I had cheesecake every week for a long time, and eventually got sick of it, and didn't eat it for a few years after that. But now I've learned to love it again - it's quite a summery treat but it reminds me of christmases at home where we always have a cheesecake for dessert. These mini no-bake cheesecakes are great for portion control and they look adorable!
 
Recipe
 
125g digestive biscuits
50g butter
140ml double cream
300g cream cheese
2-3 squeezes of lemon juice
50g icing sugar
 
Firstly, crush the digestive biscuits into crumbs. Melt the butter, either in the microwave or on the hob, and add in the crumbly biscuits.
 
 
 
 
Line a muffin pan with cupcake cases (I made 9 good sized cheesecakes). Press the biscuit base into the bottom of the cases and flatten out with the back of a teaspoon, so that it's nice and even. Let them set in the fridge for an hour or two.
 
 
When the base is set, whisk together the cream cheese and icing sugar and then whisk in the cream until it is thick and creamy.

 
 

 
Lay it onto the chilled bases and smooth it down.
 
 
 
 
Let them set for a few hours or overnight and then carefully peel away the cases. And there you have it, cute little cheesecakes! Enjoy!
