Digestive biscuits, crushed

175g

Butter, melted

55g

Full fat soft cheese

300g

Juice 2 large lemons

Pack frozen (and defrosted) or fresh cranberries

300g

Caster sugar

100g

You will also need…

18cm spring form tin, base lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 4

Mix together the crushed biscuits and melted butter then lightly press into the tin. Chill for 10 minutes.

Add a sprinkling of ground almonds to the biscuit base or use different biscuits for this recipe – try lighter dark chocolate digestives (reduced 30% less fat than standard).

Step 2 of 4

Beat the light condensed milk and soft cheese together until completely smooth. Add the lemon juice and combine thoroughly (watch the mixture thicken!). Spread the creamy filling over the base. Chill for 2-4 hours.

This cheesecake sets perfectly without the need for gelatine thanks to the natural setting effect of lemon juice on condensed milk. 

Step 3 of 4

Tumble the berries into a small pan with the sugar and 100ml water, cover and simmer for 5 minutes until the berries are soft and pulpy. Reserve a tablespoonful of the softened, pulpy berries, for decoration and then push the rest of the mixture through a sieve. Chill the cranberry coulis until ready to serve.

Step 4 of 4

Remove the cheesecake from the tin and place on a serving plate. Gently pour the cranberry coulis over the cheesecake, spreading out to the edges to serve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy! This was the quickest and easiest cheesecake I've ever made - I was almost embarrassed to explain to my guests little effort it took. I did chill it for longer than the recipe suggested but the results were excellent. Making another one now to take to a friends for dinner!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish recipe Ruined my Christmas dessert by trusting this useless recipe. Followed the recipe to the t and the cheesecake did not set. DO NOT USE THIS RECIPE I'm sticking to classic recipe with no carnation and using gellatine instead RUBBISH
