No Bake Lemon Cheesecake
But first….some Summer loving…..
I had bought my daughter a new packet of supermarket pants this weekend. Hurriedly grabbed as I passed them with two whinging, fighting devil children on the way to the till after the will to live had been lost in the Home Baking, Bread, Dairy and Frozen Vegetable Aisles. Occasionally I do feel an overwhelming desire to drop kick my kids into the waist high open freezers on top of the cauliflower florets and sliced carrots . I then imagine leaving them to vegetable frostbite in order to teach them a lesson whilst dodging the security guards and legging it swiftly to a beautiful, sunny meadow where I can doze in the sunshine and talk to the tame wildlife that come to nibble from my hand………..
Pants bought as well as a whole carrier bag full of crisps. (Don’t judge it was one of those days) I drove like a lunatic home whilst trying to deep breathe and remember their numerous virtues. Netflix saved the next couple of hours and I most thankfully grabbed the opportunity to sit alone, ram the rest of the crisps in my mouth and regroup. That night after half a bottle of wine I was able to psycho stare at them as usual whilst they slept and feel my heart burst with love instead of murderous intent…….Apart from the odd instance I LOVE being with them. I make it my mission for us to laugh as much as we possibly can. I am all too aware that this time is short and they are growing up so hellishly quickly. Soon they will be shutting themselves away in their smelly bedrooms, refusing to talk, obsessed with social media and sending each other horribly inappropriate pictures of themselves 😱😱😱. Mother of God what is that all about 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️……. So it makes sense to me to revel in this close relationship whilst it lasts and try to have as much of a scream as we can. And it seems that recently my daughter has taken up my comedy mantle, seemingly out of nowhere and I am left speechless at her six year old dry humour and sass……..(this is where the pants come in)………
As I was finishing drying her hair ready for school this morning I noticed that her new pair of pants had writing on the front that I had not noticed in my desperate supermarket dash to the till. Due to my aging eyeballs I couldn’t see what the top line said and so pulled the waist band of the fabric forwards to get a better look. Relieved it didn’t say anything about spanking I let go. As I sent her back to her bedroom to get dressed she turned back to me and said deadpan, ” Well that was awkward………….” (I didn’t even know she knew what awkward meant!)…… I paused then exclaimed incredulously, ” I’m your Mother! ” Quick as a flash and still deadpan she said, ” No, you’re a Nosy Parker ” and with a flick of her head she turned on her heels back to her bedroom where I could hear her giggling into her vest…. God help me she is going to be trouble ……I love it.
No Bake Lemon Cheesecake Recipe.
This recipe for Lemon Cheesecake is sensational and so crazily easy it is perfect for times of children induced stress where you want something fabulous but feel like mostly sitting in the corner ramming crisps in your mouth. Please understand that I am extremely genuine when I say it is not only incredible but incredibly simple too. This Lemon Cheesecake recipe is THE Lemon Cheesecake recipe. Soused in cream I want no other.
Make the ginger biscuit base, whisk all the filling ingredients together at the same time and dollop it in for mouthfuls of Lemony Heaven.
It is a big crowd pleaser every time and will sit in the fridge happily for leftovers. Mega, mega lush Lemon Cheesecake……..and breathe
I have also published this recipe in the Huffington Post
- 3 large Lemons
- 200 mls double cream
- 1 tin condensed milk 397 grams
- 180 grams full fat cream cheese
- 200 grams ginger biscuits
- 80 grams unsalted butter melted
Crush the biscuits well and add the butter. I do this in my food processor.
Tip the buttery crumbs into the dish you are using. Mine is 23 cm wide but don't sweat a cm smaller or so.
Push them all firmly flat with the back of a spoon or your fingers. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 mins.
Juice the lemons and tip into a large bowl along with all the remaining ingredients and whisk until it all considerably thickens. I use a free standing mixer which makes this bit even easier but a handheld electric whisk will do the job too. It needs to be very thick.
Dollop it onto the base and smooth over with a spatula. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours or so.
Apply to Murderous Face for genuine serenity and bliss.
