8ozplain biscuits (approx 250g)(graham crackers, marie biscuits, digestives etc)
1tablespoonsuperfine sugar (or caster sugar)
powdered sugar (or icing sugar)(to garnish)
3punnetsberries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or mixed berries)(optional)
½cupberry jelly (or jam)(optional)
In a food processor, chop the crackers until they resemble breadcrumbs. If you don't have a food processor, put the crackers into a ziploc bag and squeeze the air out. Hit the bag with a rolling pin and roll the bag to crush the crackers.
Still in the food processor (or in a large bowl), add the butter and sugar.
Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of your springform pan.
Refrigerate to cool (approximately 30 minutes).
IF YOU ARE MAKING A BERRY CHEESECAKE, when the base has cooled, spread half of the jelly (jam) all over the base.
Sprinkle the gelatine into the lukewarm water and stir until the gelatine has dissolved.
Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until it's light and fluffy.
While continuing to mix, slowly pour in the condensed milk - a little at a time.
Stop mixing, and fold through the gelatine mixture.
Fold in the whipped cream.
IF YOU ARE MAKING A BERRY CHEESECAKE, put a layer of berries (approximately ⅓ of the berries) on the bottom on the cracker base in the springform pan.
Pour over the cheesecake mixture.
Refrigerate for a minimum of six hours (but it would be better if you could leave it overnight).
Remove the springform pan and serve your chilled cheese cake in slices.
IF YOU ARE MAKING A BERRY CHEESECAKE, spread the remaining half of the jelly (jam) over the top of the cheesecake, then press the remainder of the berries into the top just prior to serving.dust with powdered sugar. Dust with powdered sugar.
