Ho! Ho! Ho! I bring you a somewhat belated Christmas Celebration dessert.
The week has escaped me and Christmas Eve is here before I know it.
Anyway, this recipe is a ‘keeper’ whether you save it for next Christmas, or can’t wait to try it out on your New Year’s celebration.
So what do we have? A gingerbread biscuit base to a creamy, orange, ‘zesty’ baked cheesecake. Basically, a seasonal twist to a tried-and-tested classic.
In this busy Christmas period I have baked three gingerbread houses – one for each child to decorate. Quite frankly, I couldn’t face any further re-rolling so I thought I would bake up the off-cuts and use them in the base of the cheesecake. If you don’t have gingerbread, use ginger nut biscuits instead, they will work equally well.
This is an easy, bake ahead dessert that will take the stress out of entertaining. It tastes rather good too.
Baked with love from my kitchen to yours!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
