Last week's WCW was missed due to sickness in the house, horrible weather and a baking fail.
However, this week I decided to go with a recipe I knew would be good as it is out of a recipe book with a difference- my mother's handwritten collection of recipes. This book is falling apart and yellowed, with recipes cut out of magazines, recipes written out by people long deceased, and my mother's handwriting gracing most pages.
I tried her Lemon Cheesecake recipe for a dinner party and it brought back such fond memories. Fluffy on top, with a not too hard base and a yummy lemon filling- if you only try to make one cheesecake, make this one!
You will need:
- 1 packet plain biscuits crushed
- 4 oz butter melted
- 1 packet lemon jelly crystals
- 3/4 cup boiling water
- 2 tsp lemon rind grated
- 1 1/2 cups evaporated milk chilled well
- 1 cup cream cheese softened
- 1 cup castor sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
