Method

Strawberry Cheesecake is a community recipe submitted by Soph321 and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Crush the digestive biscuits in a bowl (just use your fingers).
  • Melt the butter and then pour into the bowl of crushed biscuits and stir well. Find a container or flat bowl and press the biscuit mixture on the bottom evenly. Use a metal tablespoon/ teaspoon to spoon out jam and spread it evenly over the layer of biscuit, (make sure the spoon is wet to stop the jam from sticking)
  • In a separate large bowl beat together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. In another bowl or a processor, whip the double cream, and then pour and fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Carefully spoon the cheesecake mixture onto the biscuit and strawberry base, then using another wet metal tablespoon/teaspoon smooth the surface perhaps leaving a whippy effect or decorating with a fork.
  • (Optionally) drizzle the top with strawberry sauce or decorate with strawberries.
  • Leave in the fridge overnight or for 3- 5 hours.

    • I just made this. Was yummy. I blathered it in 2 pun-nets full of chopped strawberries and then drizzled it in white chocolate before putting in the fridge to set. Perfect. I used white sugar for this recipe and it worked a treat.

    • Is it normal granulated sugar that is to be used? Or caster or icing sugar?

    • While hearing your "Nigellissima" on "SIC Mulher", I take the opportunity to tell you that yesterday, LATE at night, i did this recipe to be today's dessert. However I changed one thing, the jam for real strawberries. I dare you to try the same thing! I thought it was SUPER! I'D send you a slice, but it would melt in the way to the airport and inside the plane...;) For me, it's one of the best recipes I've ever tried at first and got 5* results.
