MAKING

3) Use foil plates and line the bases and sides with the biscuit crumb mixture.

4) In a liquidizer, add the jelly by cutting.

5) In a saucepan, place butter and milk. Place over heat to bring a boil.

6) Pour this over the goblet and liquidize until the mixture is smooth.

7) Add the remaining cheesecake ingredients and liquidize until smooth.

8) Place the liquidizer inside the refrigerator to settle the mixture, for some time.

9) With a spatula, scrape down the slides and cover to liquidize until foamy.

10) Distribute the mixture among the plates and place inside the refrigerator to set.

11) To prepare the topping, drain the fruit and thicken the juice by adding cornflour, arrowroot or potato flour.

SERVING

12) Top the cheesecake with the fruits and use the thickened syrup to glaze the topping. Alternately, top with whipped cream and chocolate curls.

TIPS

To freeze the cheesecake, cover with foil and label, if un-topped; or open-freeze before covering, if topped.

To thaw the cheesecake, unwrap, place on a serving plate and leave overnight in the refrigerator or thaw at room temperature for 4-6 hours.
