Accessories you need



These cheesecakes are light and lemony, and not as heavy as normal cheesecake. The gelatine keeps their shape so they can be served freestanding, and look great mixed with different toppings. I have experimented with passionfruit topping using one cup of passionfruit and one cup of water, and also a lemon juice topping.

I made these for individual serves in straight sided silicone muffin moulds.

You can replace the butter in the base mixture with chocolate, and the biscuits with nuts, e.g. macadamia nuts.

I will experiment with the juice of an extra lemon next time I make this.

You can just place the base mixture on the base only, rather than up the sides of the pan as well. In this case, you just need to make half the base mixture.
