CLASSIC NICE CHEESECAKE

  • Prep time: 20 mins + 30 mins refrigeration

  • Cook time: 50 mins + cooling

  • Serves: 10-12

    Ingredients

    • 1 x 250g packet of Arnott’s Nice biscuits

    • 125g butter, melted

    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

    • 2 x 250g packets of cream cheese, room temperature

    • ½ cup caster sugar

    • 1 tsp vanilla extract

    • 3 eggs

     

METHOD

Base

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 150°C. Grease a 20cm (base measurement) springform tin.


Step 2

Place Arnott’s Nice biscuits and cinnamon in a bowl of food processor and process until biscuits are finely crushed. Add melted butter and process until combined.


Step 3

Transfer mixture to the prepared tin, and using the back of a spoon, press evenly over the base and up the sides of the tin.


Step 4

Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until required for a firm crust.


Filling

Step 1

In a medium bowl beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.


Step 2

Pour mixture over the biscuit base.


Step 3

Bake for 50 minutes or until set.


Step 4

Turn the oven off and leave cheesecake in the oven with door ajar until completely cooled, this will help prevent the cheesecake from cracking.


Tips

  • Add a teaspoon of lemon or orange zest to your cream cheese mixture for extra flavour.

  • Replace the cinnamon with mixed spice for a twist.

  • Serve with your favourite berries and double cream.

  • If you don’t have a food processor, do it the old-fashioned way. Place biscuits in a zip lock bag and crush with a rolling pin.

Over the last few weeks, Arnott's has released a few of their classic biscuit recipes, including the Iced VoVo and the Scotch Finger.
