How to make it

  • Using a food processor, blitz together the biscuits and butter until it looks and feels like a wet sand. Pour and press the mixture in an 8" spingform pan until it covers the whole bottom. Reverve.
  • In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and lime (or lemon). Reserve.
  • In another bowl lightly whip the cream until it thickens a bit. You don't have to put too much air in it, it has to be firm but still creamy and not dry.
  • Mix together the cream cheese and the cream until they're completely amalgamated. Pour mixture in the springform pan and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours (in my case, I had to refrigerate it overnight because brazilian double cream is not as thick as the british one).
  • After the cheesecake has set, pour the cherry preserve on top of it and serve. I prefer blueberry jam, which I dissolve with a bit of water in a pan over low heat, until it looks like a thick syrup. After that, I sieve it to make a smooth sauce.

    Think we could use a graham crackers or vanilla waffers crushed for the crust for this? Looks yummy. Thanks for the post.

    Thanks, Ahmed. It's just that it's such a creamy pie, I don't want to spoil it with pits. This is why I prefer to dissolve and sieve the jam. :)

    Nigella said "digestive biscuits", since they don't sell those in Brazil, I used regular crackers. Just sweet ones that we have here.
