Nothing screams summer more than Wimbledon-inspired strawberries and cream!


This cheesecake is a perfect summer dessert and of course uses the best local cream and ingredients!

INSTRUCTIONS…


Crush the biscuits in a food bag with a rolling pin until fine crumbs. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and then pour in the biscuit crumbs. Stir well to combine. Transfer into an 8 or 9 inch springform tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon or a potato masher. Set in the fridge.


Cream together the cheese, vanilla and icing sugar in a large bowl with a hand whisk or in a stand mixer.


In another bowl lightly whip the cream until it just holds its shape. Fold this gently into the cheese mixture. Then add the chopped strawberries and combine - try not to overmix.



Pour onto the chilled biscuit base and spread out evenly.


Chill in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours but preferably overnight.


In a medium bowl, mix the strawberries, icing sugar and vanilla. Set in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.


Whip the double cream with the icing sugar. Fill a piping bag fitted with a large closed star nozzle with the whipped cream.


Remove the cheesecake from the tin onto a serving plate.


Pipe on 12 cream rosettes around the outside.

Add the strawberries into the middle of the cheesecake.


Slice and enjoy!
