This cheesecake is based on a recipe for No Bake Peach Cheesecake by homegirl. So many thanks go to her for giving me the idea and giving me the "ok" to post my version. I have made the changes necessary so that those of us in New Zealand & Australia can make a similar great dessert. You can also use other fruit & jelly combinations depending on what fruit & jellies are available. Note that the time given does not include chilling time.
- 1 (250 g) packet plain sweet biscuits (I use Arnotts Nice Biscuits)
- 125 g butter (melted)
- 250 g cream cheese
- 4 tablespoons icing sugar
- 300 ml cream (whipping cream)
- 1 3⁄4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons cornflour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 (85 g) packet strawberry jelly crystals
- 1 (400 g) punnet strawberries
- For the base, crumb the biscuits using a food processor and add the melted butter.
- Reserving 1/3 cup press remaining mix into a 9x13 dish. I like to use a glass dish to show off the layers.
- For the filling, beat cream cheese and sugar together.
- Whip the cream until soft peak stage and then fold into cream cheese mixture.
- Spread over the base and place in fridge to chill.
- For the topping, put the cornflour, water and sugar in a saucepan and boil until thickened.
- Stir in the jelly crystals until all are dissolved.
- Chill until cold and starting to set.
- Slice strawberries and add to chilled jelly.
- Spoon over the filling as evenly as possible.
- Sprinkle the reserved 1/3 cup crumb mix over the top.
- Refrigerate until jelly has set and you are ready to serve.
- Cut into squares and remove carefully. I use a fish slice to do this.
- Serve with some whipped cream on the side or on top of each square if desired.
Just tried this. and it was an instant winner. My son, nephew, dad and hubby ( a houseful of men) ate every morsel and asked for second - and they do not usually have deserts! This is absolutely delicious and super easy to make. thank you for this recipe.
I am giving this 5 stars without even tasting it as I tried the layers as I went and YUM! Waiting for it to set now. Nice easy recipe to follow. I added some lemon zest and a little juice to the filling as I love the tang of lemon. Took the previous post suggestions and used half gingernut biccies and half Nice. This recipe has saved my butt today as once a year at my work we do a morning tea for birthdays. My turn comes around and our stove BLEW UP! I love cooking and sharing my creations and this was my time to shine - thank you Jen for giving me a "no bake" showstopper. Aussie strawberries are awesome this time of year and I got mine fresh from the market today. The finished product looks gorgeous! When it is served tomorrow I will try and snap a pic for upload xx :)
all your stuff is great Jen, and this was too!!!
