How to make Easy Cheesecake

Lovely summer dessert that's easy to make. I don't actually have own any chefs rings, so I couldn't make a proper looking cheesecake. But actually, if you are in a rush then by using a soufflé dish or even a wine glass (as seen on an episode of The F Word, I think.) can save you time and will taste just as delicious!

  1. Mix together the melted butter, digestive biscuits and cinnamon.

  2. Spoon the mixture into a chefs ring and press down with the back of a spoon to make the base. Place into the freezer for a short period of time.

  3. In a bowl, combine the whipped cream, mascarpone cheese, sugar and any other extras for the topping.

  4. Spoon into the chefs ring, on top of the biscuit base. Remove the chefs ring using a hot towel or blow torch quickly. If the mixture is too runny, then refrigerate before removing the chefs ring.

  5. Garnish and serve!
