Preparation time: over 2 hours

Cooking time: less than 10 mins

Serves 8

Dietary V

Ingredients

100g/3½oz unsalted butter

250g/8¾oz digestive biscuits, crushed

600g/1lb 5oz cream cheese

25ml/1fl oz Baileys or other Irish cream liqueur

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

100ml/3½oz icing sugar

300ml/10½oz double cream, whipped

100g/3½oz grated chocolate

To garnish Cocoa powder, to dust

Method

Melt the butter in a pan and add the crushed digestive biscuits. Mix well until the biscuits have absorbed all the butter.

Remove from the heat and press into the bottom of a lined 18cm/7in spring form tin. Place in the refrigerator and allow to set for one hour.

Lightly whip the cream cheese then beat in the Irish cream and icing sugar.

In another mixing bowl whisk together the cream and vanilla extract until soft peaks form.

Fold the whipped cream and grated chocolate into the cream cheese (be sure not to over work). When smooth, spoon evenly onto the biscuits.

Refrigerate and allow to set for a further two hours. Once set, remove and decorate with cocoa powder dusted over the top.

Indulge.

*Tips

Blitz the digestive biscuits in a food processor for a fine crumb base

To make this a child friendly dessert replace the Baileys with 1/3 vanilla pod. A delicious vanilla cheesecake with a hint of chocolate – something to suit everyone

Enjoy xx
