Cheesecake Jars


As it is Summer, I wanted to start making easy treats that could be used at a BBQ or picnic :) I was searching around online and I found this really cute idea on the BBC good food website! They are so easy to make and it doesn't involve any cooking; the perfect recipe for a dessert that can fit around a busy schedule. It does say on the site that it should take 20 minutes though......haha that was not the case with me. Maybe about 40 minutes if I was lucky. I don't know, maybe I was just really slow :') 

You Will Need:

  • 200g buttery biscuit
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 200ml double cream
  • 6 tbsp icing sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 500g strawberries, halved or quartered       
  • 8 jars with lids



    Method:

    Blitz the biscuits to crumbs in a food processor or in a bowl with the end of a rolling pin.

    Divide the biscuit crumbs between the jars.

    In a large bowl, whisk the cream cheese, cream, 5 tbsp icing sugar and the vanilla extract until softly whipped. 

    Tip half the strawberries and the remaining tbsp of icing sugar into another bowl and crush with a fork to a puree. 

    Ripple the puree through the cream and divide between the jars. 

    Top the cheesecake jars with the remaining strawberries and then place them in the fridge to chill until ready to eat.



    These actually came out pretty good if I do say so myself haha. I think this is a really cute idea; the jars being a really unique and nice touch. This is also the perfect serving and the jars that I bought are quite small. 
    The only think I would say is with making the puree, my strawberries were do fresh that they were really hard to squash with a fork :') The puree also didn't come out very thick so I couldn't really ripple it through the cream, but oh well, I still think they look tasty! 

    If you want to see the recipe on the BBC website, or you just want to have a look around on there for any other recipes, follow this link :) BBC Good Food
