Ingredients
 

Base:

  • 1 ¾ cups (200 g) ginger biscuits / cookies (e.g. ginger nuts, ginger snaps)
  • cups (75 g) unsalted butter

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 2 ¼ cups (500 g) full-fat cream cheese
  • 1 cups (120 g) icing sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoon orange extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 orange’s zest
  • 1 ¼ cups (300 ml) heavy cream (e.g. double cream)
  • gingerbread men (optional, to decorate)

Instructions
 

Base:

  • Place the cookies into a food processor or blender and whizz until you get small crumbs. Or you can put the cookies in a freezer bag and bash them till you get crumbs. Tip these into a mixing bowl.
  • Melt the butter in a microwave and pour this over the crushed cookies. Mix these together until combined.
  • Press the mix into a lined tin (see tips), using the back of a spoon or measuring cup to help firmly press down. Put this in the fridge or freezer while making the cheesecake filling.

Cheesecake Filling:

  • In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth and fluffy, then sieve in the icing sugar and add the vanilla, orange extract and the orange zest, stirring until just smooth.
  • Whip the cream for several minutes, using an electric mixer or stand mixer, until it forms soft peaks. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mix until just combined.
  • Spread the filling evenly over the biscuit base, then cover the tin with cling film and refrigerate for at least 2hrs or overnight. After this has set and is firm to touch, you can decorate your cheesecake then enjoy!
