  • 4 x 250 gram (9oz) blocks cream cheese – room temperature
  • 2 x 395 gram (14 oz) tins sweetened condensed milk

3 ingredient no bake lemon cheesecake

Lemon Cheesecake Instructions

Blitz the biscuits into fine crumbs in a food processor.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the biscuit crumbs and the melted butter until a wet sand consistency is achieved. (Don’t rinse the bowl that you melted the butter in just yet!)

Line the base of a 23 cm springform pan with baking paper and brush the sides with a dash of melted butter (Phoodie uses a pastry brush and the leftover drips of butter from the bowl that is used in step 2 above!)

Transfer the butter/biscuit mixture to the tin and using your fingertips press the mixture evenly into the tin.

Transfer the butter/biscuit mixture to the tin and using your fingertips press the mixture evenly into base and upsides. Place this in the freezer whilst you make the filling.

In an electric mixer, on medium speed, beat your room temperature cream cheese until smooth, light and fluffy. This might take 10-15 minutes. Keep going unit there are no lumps at all. It should look like a fluffy marshmallow!

You will need to stop the machine from time to time and scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl to make sure all of the cheese is well beaten.

Once you are happy with the “fluffiness,” still on medium speed, add in the cans of sweetened condensed milk, one at a time. Pour one can down one side and the other can down the other side.

Whatever way you do it, just make sure to pour in a slow, steady stream whilst the mixer runs on medium.

Once you have added the condensed milk, you can move the speed to high and keep beating it together until well combined.

Turn the speed back to medium and add the lemon juice and vanilla. Once you have added both, you can turn to high and mix again until very well combined.

Pour filling into the biscuit base. Use a spatula to smooth the top, sprinkle with finely grated lemon rind (optional but preferable!) and set in the fridge for at least 8 hours (preferably overnight!)

Release gently from the tin and serve immediately!
