No Bake Cheesecake


Remember the New York Style Cheesecake I made during the baking class?? No doubt the cake was nice. But I didn't want to make it again. Instead I simplified and made this simple one that does not need baking. For the bottom layer, it's not the expensive digestive biscuits. I made with cream crackers. Crushed and crumbled with butter and pressed into a greased pan. Its crumbly but if you prefer a compacted type, use more butter.

For the top layer, its cream cheese, lemon juice and condensed milk whisked together. Thats about all for the ingredients and that's about all to make the cake. Set the cake in the fridge for at least 24 hours and there you have - creamy lemony cheese topping over crumbly buttery layer.


Ingredients
For the crumble
160g cream crackers - crushed to a fine consistency
70g melted butter (add more if you prefer)

For the cheese topping
200g cream cheese - soften
1 cup condensed milk
2-4 tbsp lemon juice (or per taste)

Optional
Sliced red and green cherries. 
Method
Crumble crushed crackers and butter together.
Press into a greased springform pan. 
Flatten to ensure its firm.
Leave in the fridge to set for an hour.  
Whip or whisk all ingredients for topping for a smooth mixture.
Bring out the crumble from the fridge and spread cheese mixture on top.
Use a fork to score the cheese mixture for a simple pattern.
Gently press cherries over. 
Let it set overnight in the fridge.
