Zingy Orange Cheesecake

A great dinner party dessert that packs plenty of citrusy punch – this cheesecake recipe can be chilled in advance, making it hassle free too.

Ingredients

Serves: 8


16 digestive biscuits, crushed

50g butter, melted

250g cream cheese, softened

400ml whipping cream, whipped
