Ingredients and Method

Ingredients

  • 250g digestive biscuits
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted
  • 400g cream cheese
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 400ml double cream
  • Summer fruits

Method

  1. Grease a 24cm quiche dish with some butter.
  2. Crush the biscuits in a pestle and mortar or a food mixer until they resemble breadcrumbs. Alternatively, you can put the biscuits in a food safe bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
  3. Melt the unsalted butter in a frying pan and stir in the biscuit crumbs. Press the cookie mixture into the base and sides of the quiche dish and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Whisk together the cream cheese, vanilla and caster sugar in a mixing bowl before whipping the double cream into stiff peaks in another mixing bowl. Fold the cream into the cheese and sugar mixture.
  5. Tip the mixture over the biscuit base and smooth out using a spatula or the back of a spoon, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours (best left overnight).
  6. Get creative with your decorations with sliced or whole summer fruits.
