Unbaked Classic Lemon Cheesecake

This is a very traditional style lemon cheesecake that is best made the day before – and left to refrigerate overnight to really set well.  You can easily substitute the lemon for lime or lemonades – and you like it extra tangy, just add in an extra teaspoon of fresh zest!

  1. Line the springform pan with baking paper, both on the bottom, and use another piece to line the sides.

  2. Place the Scotch Finger biscuits, the melted butter and the cinnamon into a food processor, and pulse until the the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs and all comes together.

  3. Pour the mixture into the springform pan.  Press the mixture into the sides.  Use the bottom of a glass to push the filling into the sides and make the crumbs stick firmly.

  4. Place the base in the fridge to harden whilst you make the filling.

  5. Place the cream cheese, lemon zest, vanilla extract, condensed milk and lemon juice into a bowl.  Use electric mixers to beat the mixture until it is smooth (about 5 minutes).

  6. Pour the mixture into the base.

  7. Cover the plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
