Method

  1. Step 1:

    Prepare your cake tin by lining it with non-stick baking parchment.

  2. Step 2:

    Blitz the shortbread biscuits into fine crumbs either using a food processor or by hand. You can bash them with the end of a rolling pin to speed up the process if doing this by hand.

  3. Step 3:

    In a bowl mix together the biscuit crumb and butter until all the crumbs have been coated and the mixture begins to stick together. Pour these into the base of your cake tin and using your hand or the back of spoon, spread the mixture evenly across the base ensuring that there are no visible gaps.

  4. Step 4:

    Place the tin in the fridge to chill for at least an hour to firm up.

  5. Step 5:

    In a separate bowl, beat together the icing sugar, cream cheese (straight from the fridge) and vanilla bean paste until smooth. (If you don't have bean paste you could use a teaspoon of Nielsen-Massey vanilla extract as an substitute) Add the cream afterwards and gently fold this in to the mixture, until it reaches a thick consistency.

  6. Step 6:

    Remove the tin from the fridge and spoon the mixture on top of the biscuit base, spreading out evenly and smoothing with a spatula or the back of a spoon.

  7. Step 7:

    Place the cheesecake into the fridge to firm up. For best results leave in the fridge overnight.

  8. Step 8:

    Remove the cheesecake from the fridge and carefully release from the tin.
