So these cherry and orange cheesecakes are ABSOLUTELY irresistible! Trust me, I’d know after the number of those I have eaten. I served them with extra whipped cream and cherries on top and then the term “food porn” truly came to life. Nothing much to add here, just go try making these and you will see for yourself.

CHERRY AND ORANGE MINI CHEESECAKES (Makes 6)

Ingredients

90g digestive biscuits
45g butter, melted
225g mascarpone
grated peel of 1 orange
a few drops of orange extract
90g sugar
3 tablespoons double cream
About 200g cherries

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl crush the biscuits and pour in melted butter. Mix together until all crumbs are coated with butter. Divide this between the jars and press into the bottom. Then cut cherries in half, remove the pit. Arrange the cherry halves on top of the biscuit base really tight to cover it all.
  2. Separately, mix mascarpone, orange peel and extract, sugar and double cream and beat this with mixer for about 2-3 minutes until all combined. Spoon this on top of cherries.
