    1. Add lime juice and rum and blend a further 10 sec/speed 5. Transfer into a bowl and set aside. Clean and dry mixing bowl.
    1. Insert butterfly. Place cream into mixing bowl and whip without setting a time/speed 4, until firm. Be careful not to over-whip. Add reserved cheese mixture and combine  6 sec/speed 4. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula and mix a further  3 sec/speed 3.
    1. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the biscuit base. Cover with plastic wrap and return to the freezer for several hours (3-4 hours) before serving. Remove from freezer about 30 minutes before serving to soften a little. Then garnish with a little mint, slice and serve.

    I have made it quite a few days before I needed it, covered it and froze it. Just leave it out to defrost a good half hour before you would like to cut it xx

    I made this originally for Christmas, and now make it regularly for guests, delicious and easy dessert that is made day before so it's one less dish to cook on the day.
