No-bake cheesecake recipe

Does anyone have a (successfully) tried and tested recipe for the above that doesn't include the measure "cup"?

Thanks.

Ingredients:
1 Whitewings Continental Cheesecake Packet
375mL milk

Instructions:
*Melt the marg/butter and mix with the biscuitybase sachet and squish it into a cheesecake-shaped pan
*Mix the milk with the cheesystuff sachet and bung it on top of the biscuity bit..
*Stick in the fridge for an hour.

Voila! Works every time*.

*Except for that one time when my sprog made it with coconut milk. Don't ask.. I'm still supressing the trauma.

Re: No-bake cheesecake recipe

Lemon cheesecake slice.

Base:
250 gram pack of sweet biscuits eg scotch finger.
125 grams butter melted in microwave.
Crush biscuits and mix with butter, press into base of a large dish. Place in refrigerator to set while preparing the cheese cake.

Cheesecake:
250 grams cream cheese.
handful of caster sugar.
Juice of 1 med/lg lemon.
Some grated lemon rind.
1 sachet of gelatin, mixed with 2 spoons of warm water.
250 ml cream, whipped.

Combine ingredients, except for the whipped cream, and beat with electric beater until smooth. Gently fold whipped cream through cheese mix. Spoon onto biscuit base. Decorate with berries, grated chocolate etc. Refrigerate until set.

A winner at parties

Re: No-bake cheesecake recipe

Lilith...

Actually I should have said it's for a demo, so I really can't use a mix.

BA, thanks. I'll have to see about getting a substitute for the gelatin. I'm a vegetarian and it won't look too good if I refuse to partake in the cheesecake with the others. Trouble is agar agar isn't the easiest thing to find here. Also what size tin would you use for that recipe?

Might have to resort to the old standby, Key Lime Pie, but I'm rather sick of it...

Well, i didn't know gelatine was based on animal bits!! I guess agar should work as well, though no experience here other that masterchef...lol.

The tin we use is about 35 x 25 x 10cm. Makes a slice about 5 to 6cm thick. you could use this recipe to make a conventional shaped cake too, with one of those adjustable round pie tin thingo's!

Your Key Lime Pie sounds interesting, it is a cheesecake? I don't make these desserts very often, as i love them far too much. It is not a healthy relationship.
