- Crush the biscuits in a Blender or in a double lined bag with a rolling pin. Mix together the crushed biscuits and melted butter then lightly press into the tin. Chill while you make the filling.
- Beat the condensed milk and cream cheese together until completely smooth. Add the lemon juice and combine thoroughly – the mixture should thicken.
- Spread the creamy filling over the base. Chill for 4 hours.
- Tumble the berries into a small pan with the sugar and 100ml (3fl oz) water, cover and simmer for 5 minutes until the berries are soft and pulpy.
- Push the mixture through a sieve and chill the cranberry coulis until ready to serve.
- Remove the cheesecake from the tin and place on a serving plate. Gently pour the cranberry coulis over the cheesecake, spreading out to the edges to serve.
Tip: Add a sprinkling of ground almonds to the biscuit base or use different biscuits for this recipe – try dark chocolate chip cookies or digestives. This cheesecake sets perfectly without the need for gelatin thanks to the natural setting effect of lemon juice on condensed milk.
