Butternut Snap Mini Lemon Cheesecakes Recipe

via Wendy’s Kitchen Table 

Heat each biscuit for 40 seconds or until soft in the microwave. Press into a mini muffin pan or patty tin to make a case.

Leave to cool. Using a cake mixer or electric beaters beat cream cheese until smooth. Add the lemon curd and beat until smooth and combined.

Dissolve gelatine powder in hot water and add to cream cheese mixture, beat until combined.

Fill the cases with the mixture. Place seasonal berries on top. Refrigerate overnight or until set.

Dust with icing sugar just before serving.

Lemon Curd Instructions

Whisk whole eggs, yolks, and sugar in a saucepan until smooth, then place over low heat. Add the butter, juice, and zest and stir continuously until thickened.

Pour into a sterilized jar. Some people like to strain the curd through a sieve but I like the zest and pith in my curd.

Lemon curd lasts 2-3 weeks covered in the fridge and the recipe makes 1 ½ cups.
