Cooks Tips

- Adding custard to the cheesecake filling makes it stretch a little further and cuts back on the richness. - In place of custard, use cream or creme fraiche. Variations: - Add 2 cups of yoghurt to the basic cheesecake mixture, and mix with the sliced strawberries and crunched brandy snaps. Serve in parfait glasses for a summer barbecue. - Make the basic cheesecake mixture and spoon into 6 brandy snap baskets. Toss 1 punnet of sliced strawberries with the orange liqueur and pile on top. - Use half the basic mixture to fill a halved sponge cake, layer with liqueur soaked sliced strawberries. Top with the other sponge half and decorate with the remaining custard mix and the crumbled brandy snaps.
