Ingredients
 

Base

  • 85 g butter
  • 250 g shortbread biscuits, crushed

Filling

  • 400 g full fat soft cheese
  • 397 g Carnation Condensed Milk
  • finely grated zest and juice of 4 limes

To Finish

  • 55 g bitter chocolate (70% cocoa solids), melted
  • 8 thin lime slices
  • 55 g icing sugar, (optional)

Instructions
 

  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter, then stir in the crushed biscuits.
  • Press onto the base of a 23 cm cake tin. Chill for 10 - 15 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the soft cheese, condensed milk, lime zest and juice for 5 minutes until thick and glossy.
  • Spoon the mixture over the biscuit base and chill for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the tin and place it on a serving plate. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the top and sides, then leave to set.

To Finish

  • Gently simmer the lime slices in a saucepan to which you have added the icing sugar and water. There should be barely enough water to cover the slices. The syrup will reduce to a sticky coating on the limes, and you need to make sure you remove the saucepan from the heat before the lime slices colour or brown.
  • Transfer the lime slices to baking parchment to set before placing on the cheesecake.
