Servings:
Instructions
  1. Pre heat oven to 160 degrees celsius (fan forced - increase 10 degrees if not fan forced)
  2. Crush biscuits to fine crumb in processor or do it old school - pop in a freezer bag and crush with rolling pin/tin of tomatoes or whatever heavy object you have handy.
  3. Stir in melted butter until well combined. Use salted butter - goes beautifully with the sweet biscuits.
  4. Line a muffin tin with paper cup cake cases.
  5. Press biscuit mix into cupcake cases. Push it in firmly and level as will be on display when served. Set aside.
  6. Combine cream cheese & sugar until smooth and creamy. I use my food processor but any mixer / hand held etc will do.
  7. Add egg and beat until all combined.
  8. Add lemon juice and cream and beat again. You want it combined but not over beaten as excessive beating will cause cheese cake to crack and split.
  9. Spoon into cupcake cases - fill to about half a cm below top of paper case - they wont rise much.
  10. Bake at 160 for 20 mins.
  11. Allow to cool before decorating - I pop them in the fridge to firm up a bit before I remove the cupcake cases.
  12. Decorate as your heart desires - lovely with fresh berries.
  13. For the ones pictured, I put down a dollop of thickened cream and toped with diced strawberries I’d soaked in a bit of liqueur (try cointreau). Add a drizzle of choc if you like.
  14. I like to serve with a homemade berry coulis drizzled all pretty on the plate and a nice dusting of icing sugar.
