No Bake Lemon Cheesecake Instructions

1) Blitz the biscuits into fine crumbs in a food processor.

2) 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!)

3) Line the base of a 23 cm spring form pan with baking paper and brush the sides with a dash of melted butter (I get a pastry brush and just use the leftover drips of butter from the bowl that I used to melt it in in step 2 above!) 4) Transfer the butter/biscuit mixture to the tin and using your fingertips press the mixture evenly into

4) Transfer the butter/biscuit mixture to the tin and using your fingertips press the mixture evenly into base and up sides. Place this in the freezer whilst you make the filling. 5) 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 and it looks like fluffy marshmallow!

5) 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 and it looks like 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.

6) Once you are happy with the “fluffiness,” still on medium speed, add in the cans of sweetened condensed milk, one at a time. I like to pour one can down one side and the other can down the other side. Whatever way you do it, just make sure to pour it in, 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.

7) 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.

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

9) Release gently from tin and serve immediately!
