I am literally addicted to any kind of citrus curd. Its pretty simple to make… A little elbow grease and separating eggs and your golden. Tasty, looks beautiful and a great finish to a dinner party. Most of all, make it in advance and let it sit in the fridge and do its thing.
2 eggs + 2 egg yolks
3/4 cup castor sugar
juice and zest of 4 limes
80g unsalted butter
Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a small pot. once whisked turn on the stove to a low heat. Add the butter and lime zest and juice, turn heat up slightly and continue whisking until the mixture turns thick. Strain through a sieve and put in the fridge to cool down.
250g cream cheese, at room temperature
300ml thickened cream
4 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
200g digestive biscuits
50g unsalted butter, melted
Place the crackers in a ziplog bag and crush with your hands. They break up very easily. Once broken up add the melted butter and mix well by squashing it all together in the ziplog bag. Whip the cream in a large bowl. I used a hand held mixer. Once whipped add the vanilla, sugar and cream cheese and beat until well combined.
Assembly time! Place some of your biscuit mixture at the bottom of a glass followed by the cheesecake mixture, top with some lime curd and more biscuit mix. Allow to set in the fridge for 4 hours. Enjoy
