Lime and Mascarpone Cheesecake - A very creamy and delightfully simple dessert. Can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge. No cooking required.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • 500 g mascarpone cheese (or plain cream cheese)
  • 4 limes (preferably unwaxed)
  • 200 g ginger nut biscuits, crushed or ground in a food processor
  • 50 g butter
  • a little icing sugar

Serves ~8.

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the biscuit crumbs. Press firmly into a 20cm diameter loose-bottomed dish and put aside.
  2. Put the mascarpone in a bowl and beat until firm.
  3. Add the juice of three limes and the grated or zested rind of all four into the cheese.
  4. Stir, adding a little icing sugar if the mixture seems too sloppy.
  5. Spread the cheese mixture over the biscuit base and chill for an hour or so before serving.
