Let’s just do the crust the usual way, by crunching up a packet of short biscuits and stirring the crumbs into 75 ml of melted, unsalted butter. Line a greased baking tin with the crumb mixture and keep in the refrigerator until you need it.
|125 g castor sugar|
|500 ml smooth cream cheese|
|125 ml double cream|
Bella’s cheesecake filling is the best that I can remember from my childhood days.
