Strawberry and Lime Cheesecakes

I made these treats on a Sunday afternoon last weekend for our pudding that evening.  We'd had a busy day gardening and tidying up the house so a tasty pudding was well deserved.  This recipe serves 4, as I didn't have any due to my strict gestational diabetes diet.


Strawberry and Lime Cheesecakes

100g digestive biscuits, crushed 
50g melted butter
6 Tblsp/90ml sweetened condensed milk (not the light version)
250g mascapone cheese
zest and juice of 2 limes
150g strawberries, sliced

Mix together the crushed biscuits and melted butter.  Divide evenly between glasses or ramekins and press down firmly with the back of a spoon. 

In a bowl, mix the condensed milk, mascapone, juice from both limes and zest from 1 lime together until thoroughly mixed and creamy.  Spoon into glasses or ramekins on top of the crushed biscuit base.  Chill until ready to serve, or for at least 15 minutes.  

Just before serving top each cheesecake with some sliced strawberries and the zest of a lime.


I'm entering these cheesecakes into Dead Easy Desserts, created by Sarah and hosted by Slice Off Me for August.  The theme this month is Strawberries.
