Tim Tam Cheesecake

This past Mothers Day I was keen to bake my mum SOMETHING??

It took a while to come up with an idea, but I got there.

She loves Tim Tam Biscuits.

So I decided to combine these into a cheesecake to make a very decadent dessert for her.

250 g choc ripple biscuits
100 g butter cubed
500 g cream cheese cubed
1/3 cup cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1 packet Tim Tams (any flavour)

Chocolate curls / more Tim Tams / Maltesers to decorate

Into a food processor, blend the choc ripple biscuits until fine. 

Add the butter and mix until combined. 

Press the mix into a lined spring form pan. 

Place the cubed cream cheese into the bowl of your stand mixer and mix until smooth.

Add the cream, vanilla and sugar and mix until smooth and the sugar is dissolved. 

Stir in the crushed Tim Tams and spread onto the base. 

Cover and chill overnight

Prior to serving decorate as desired. 

In the past any biscuit base I've made used melted butter. But I wanted to give it a try using chilled.  The base turned out perfect! It was soft enough that a spoon got through it easily and not crumbly at all.

Now I didn't think it was sweet, but others who tasted it said it was. So maybe use a little less sugar and try as you go, adding as much as you think it needs.

I may be linked up at these parties.
