Take the cooking out of dessert and whip up this no-bake blackforest cheesecake for dessert. You won' t be disappointed.
Line a 20cm round tin with baking paper. Finely crush biscuits and add to a glass bowl and mix in melted butter. If mixture does not compact enough, gradually add more butter. Press firmly into round tin, making sure base is flat and smooth and pressed up the side as well. Allow to set in fridge for 30 mins.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice until sugar has dissolved. Set aside. In simmering water add 3 tsp gelatin, stirring until dissolved. Once dissolved set aside and allow to cool.
In separate bowl beat cream until soft peaks form. Fold in cream cheese mixture and then add gelatin slowly. Pour into biscuit base and set in fridge overnight or until firmly set. For topping you can either use bottle of mixed berry sauce or a tin of black cherries.
