Cheesecake

This cheesecake is dedicated my brother-in-law Froggy and my niece Juanita's partner Hilton.  This cake is really expensive to make, but hey you only live once and if you do it right - once is all you need.

Ingredients:

1 pkt tennis biscuits - crushed
100g butter
2 tubs full fat cream cheese @ room temp
2 tubs smooth cottage cheese
1 tin condensed milk
1/4 cup castor sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla essence or the seeds of 1/2 vanilla pod
1 punnet of mixed frozen berries
1/2 cup castor sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 packet jelly - disolved with 1/2 cup hot water

Method:

Line bottom 23cm loose bottom / springform cake tin with grease proof paper
Melt butter and add to biscuits and press into bottom of tin to make a biscuit base
Mix the cheeses, condensed milk, eggs, vanilla and lemon juice together - pour into tin
Bake in a preheated oven @ 200 Deg C for 40 minutes
Take out of oven and allow to cool down completely and spoon on the berry topping

Topping:

Put berries, sugar and lemon juice into a pot and bring to the boil. When berries start breaking down, take off the stove and add the jelly mix. Allow to cool (not set) and spread on top of cooled baked cake.

Allow cake to cool completely and place in fridge for at least 2 hours. Serve and enjoy.
