Sweet treats - Lemon and Ginger Cheesecake

I love me some cheesecake! This is one of my grandparents favourite things I bake so I thought I'd share it with you! 

You Will Need 

For the base 
450 G Ginger Nuts
150 G Unsalted butter 
3 Tbsp Golden Syrup 

For the topping
300 G Full fat cream cheese
300 Ml Double cream
3 Lemons 
2 Tsp Vanilla essence 
150 G Icing sugar

1. Start off with the base, crush the biscuits with a rolling pin until the pieces of biscuits are the desired size. Then pop the butter and golden syrup into a pan and melt. 

2. Pop the butter and syrup into the biscuit mixture and mix together and press the mixture into a tin. 

3. Put the base into the fridge and move on to the topping. Start of by putting the cream into a bowl and whisking with an electric whisk (You can do it by hand but i'd suggest you use a electric whisk).

4. Once the cream is forming soft peaks put in the zest of the lemons, the cream cheese, vanilla essence and the icing sugar and fold in with a spatula or a metal spoon. 

5. Pop the filling onto the base and put back into the fridge for at least 4 hours preferably overnight but if your anything like my family it never makes it!
