Make sure not to scrimp on the lemon juice – it’s the magic ingredient that’s going to set your cheesecake. If you add too little, the mix won’t thicken enough and your cheesecake (although still delicious!) won’t set in the fridge. We’d recommend weighing out 60g rather than eyeballing the amount..

Pour the condensed milk into a large bowl, add the cream cheese and mix together with an electric hand held mixer on the slowest speed, until smooth. Be careful not to overbeat as the mix will get very runny and impact the final setting of the cheesecake. Once the mix is smooth, add the lemon juice and gently fold in with a spatula or wooden spoon until the mixture starts to thicken up. Pour the mix on top of your biscuit base and pop in to the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours but preferably overnight.
