Recipe: Simple summer berry cheesecake

There is nothing better when the sun is shining than to head to your local PYO fruit farm for some super delicious British berries (and eaten a few along the way)

Here is a seriously simple but very tasty recipe to use up the berries in a delicious cheesecake. A good recipe to get the kids involved in too. Mine particularly enjoyed hitting the biscuits into crumbs, and I particularly enjoyed arranging the berries into the union jack (feeling very patriotic after the opening ceremony of the Olympics!)

I don't faff about with measurements, just spoons, cups or packs of ingredients so you will have to adjust for what size you are making. We made 4 individual cheesecakes, I would double all ingredients for 1 large one.

What you need
Berries of course!!! 
Any berries you like/ have picked. We've used strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries in previous ones but your could use redcurrants/blackcurrents etc too.
1 tub of cream cheese
2 tbsp of lemon curd
1 small packet of digestive biscuits
2 tbsp of unsalted butter


  1. Put the digestive biscuits into a tied sandwich bag and let the kids loose on bashing them with a rolling pin (lots of fun!) to crush them all into fine crumbs like sand.
  2. Slightly melt the butter either on the hob or microwave and open the bag to add to the crumb mixture. Re-tie and get the children to shake, rattle and roll it all together! If you are kids aren't helping, pouring the crumbs into a bowl and mixing in the butter is perfectly acceptable, just not as fun!
  3. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of your tin/s and pop into the freezer for 10 minutes whilst you prepare the topping.
  4. Mix together the cream cheese and lemon curd until it is soft and fluffy.
  5. Take tin/s out of freezer and spoon on the topping.
  6. Add you berries on top and arrange as you want
DONE!!!!! How easy?
