This is a light and refreshing dessert that’s simplicity itself.  Don’t feel that you have to stick to these flavours though.  You could swap the digestives for Bourbons, Hob Nobs or Oreos and use limes or oranges instead of lemons.  For a more adult version slip in 1-2 tbsp of fruit liqueur like Quantro.

200g Digestive Biscuits, crushed
50g Butter
500g Mascarpone Cheese
80g Icing Sugar
Zest & Juice of 2 Lemons
Mini Chocolate Eggs to decorate

Start by making the biscuit base. In a pan melt the butter then add the crushed biscuits and mix well.  Press the mixture into the base of 7” loose bottomed cake tin.  Put this is the fridge to chill whilst you make the filling.

In a bowl beat together the mascarpone, icing sugar, zest and lemon juice.  spread this on top of your biscuit base and return to the fridge for 30 minutes to set.

Once set, remove the cheesecake from the tin and decorate.
