Christmas may be over, but there are lots of people who entertain for New Year's Eve. Here is a pretty simple but luscious dessert you might like to serve. Find the richest cream you can to make this. Cream in Europe is much thicker than that available in North America.
Baileys no-bake cheesecake
Woman's Weekly recipe Baileys no-bake cheesecake makes a seriously impressive dessert when you’re entertaining friends and family, and this particular recipe is SO easy! It’s so simple to make by combining very few ingredients, including double cream and Baileys for the topping and digestive biscuits and butter for the base. There’s no need to bake this Baileys cheesecake, all you have to do is
For the base:
100 g butter
250 g digestives, crushed
For the topping:
600 g full-fat cream cheese
2 tbs Baileys
100 g icing sugar
300 ml carton double cream, whipped
100 g dark chocolate, grated
To decorate (optional):
200 ml whipped cream chocolate, for grating
This also looks good with cocoa dusted over the top, rather than grated chocolate.
1. To make the base: Melt the butter in a pan and add the crushed biscuits. Mix well until they’ve absorbed all the butter. Remove from the heat and press into the bottom of the tin. Place in the fridge for 1 hour.
2. To make the topping: Lightly whip the cream cheese and beat in the Baileys and icing sugar. Fold in the whipped cream and chocolate. Spoon onto the biscuit base.
3. Put in the fridge for another couple of hours or overnight. Once set, decorate with whipped cream and a little extra chocolate, if you like
