Method

  • 1.Break the digestive biscuits into a big plastic bag. Roll a rolling pin over the bag to crush the biscuits into crumbs.
  • 2.Melt the butter in a pan over a low heat. Turn off the heat, then stir the biscuit crumbs into the butter.
  • 3.Turn on the oven(150oC/300oF/Gas mark 3). 4.Grease the cake tin. Tip the biscuit crumbs into it and press them down firmly with a spoon.
  • 5.Bake the biscuit base for 20 minutes. 6.Meanwhile, separate the eggs into two different bowls.
  • 7.Beat together the cheese ad egg yolks. Stir in the sugar, cream, lemon juice and cornflour. Mix them well.
  • 8.In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are firm and form peaks. This may take some time.
  • 9.Add them to the cheese mixture. Turn them over gently with a metal spoon until they are mixed in.
  • 10.Pour the mixture onto the biscuit base and smooth it level. Then, put it in the oven and bake it for 50-55 minutes.
  • 11.Turn off the oven, but leave the cheesecake to cool inside it. This will stop the top of the cheesecake from cracking.
