Lemon ‘no bake’ Cheescake

Lemon 'no bake' Cheescake

This is such an easy  dessert - the kids can make it and it can still look elegant and "grown up".  It is very sweet so it needs a tart accompaniment to balance the sweetness.  You can play around with the flavours - we just love lemon but you could use any freeze dried powder to create a variation.

  • 250 g digestive biscuits
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 100 g butter melted

Filling
