    (Some Parts are in european measurement, will revise and change soon)

    (Picture Coming Soon)

    Topping

    8 digestive biscuits

    6 tbsp caster sugar

    100g unsalted butter

    Berries

    300g blackberries (or blueberries)

    2 tbsp caster sugar

    Splash of crème de cassis or water

    Vanilla cream cheese

    400g cream cheese

    6 tbsp icing sugar

    Juice of ½ lemon

    1 vanilla pod, split

    600ml double cream

    To finish

    Icing sugar, to dust

    1. For the topping, coarsely grind the biscuits in a food processor. Melt the sugar in a heavy-based nonstick pan until it begins to caramelise, then carefully add the butter, shaking the pan to mix the caramel with the butter as it melts. Add the crushed biscuits and toss to coat in the caramel. Tip on to a plate, chill for 5 minutes until firm, then break into pieces. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper.

    2. Tip the blueberries into the pan and sprinkle with the caster sugar and a splash of cassis or water. Cook over a medium-high heat for a minute until the blueberries are slightly soft. Spread on a plate; leave to cool.

    3. For the vanilla cream cheese, put the cream cheese, icing sugar and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the seeds from the vanilla pod and beat until smooth. In another bowl, lightly whip the cream to soft peaks, then fold into the cream cheese mixture.

    4. To shape individual cheesecakes, line 8 ramekins with clingfilm. Fill with the cream cheese mixture and level the tops with the back of a knife. Chill until ready to serve.

    5. Turn out the cheesecakes on to serving plates and remove the clingfilm. Scatter the topping over and spoon the blueberries around the plate. Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.
