About this recipe: If you don't like the taste of a lot of lemon, substitute some orange juice as well as the lemon, and put a little orange rind in with the lemon. To save a lot of cleaning up I line the pie dish with tin foil, enough that it goes over the sides. With this you can also lift the cheesecake out of the dish, making it a lot easier to cut than when it's in the dish. **This takes about 8 hours to set so I recommend making it in the morning.**


Serves: 12 

  • 1 packet vanilla wine biscuits, crushed
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 125g cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) lemon juice
  • Grated rind of 3 lemons

  1. Crush the wine biscuits by putting them in some greaseproof paper and going over it with a rolling pin. (DO NOT do this in a food processor or the pieces are too fine and the base becomes powdery.)
  2. Add the melted butter and 1tsp lemon rind and mix.
  3. Line a 22cm pie dish with the mixture, remembering to spread it up the sides. Place dish in the fridge while you make the filling;
  4. Put the cream cheese in a large bowl and microwave for about 30sec.
  5. Mix it and add the tin of condensed milk, all the lemon juice and remaining rind one at a time.
  6. Put this mixture into the base and put it back in the fridge.
