Lemon Curd And Cherry Mini Cheesecakes…

Makes about 14-16 cupcake size individual cheesecakes

You Will Need:

  • 200g ginger biscuits
  • 60g melted butter
  • 500g cream cheese
  • 250g mascarpone
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 jar English Provender Lemon curd
  • 2 eggs
  • 20 cherries, pitted and simmered in a pan for 10 minutes with a splash of water (If not in season use 150g drained cherry compote -I use Bonne Maman, or tinned cherries)

How To Make:

  • Preheat the oven to 180c. 
  • Crush the biscuits in a food processor and pour the melted butter over.
  • Mix well and spoon into the bottom of 14-16 cupcake cases set in a cupcake tin.
  • Using an electric mixer beat the cream cheese, mascarpone, lemon curd and sugar.
  • Add the eggs one at a time.
  • Beat until smooth and then pour over the biscuit base.
  • Bake for 5 minutes and then lower temperature to 150c and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
  • Turn off the oven but let them sit in the oven to cool for a bit.
  • It will still be slightly wobbly but it will firm up in the fridge.
  • When cool, place the tin in the refrigerator.
  • When ready to serve peel off the cupcake wrappers and dollop each cheesecake with some cherries.
