|130 g||Digestive biscuits, broken into smaller pieces|
|50 g||unsalted butter, softened|
|Dash of ground cinnamon/nutmeg (optional)|
|250 g||cream cheese, room temperature, cut into cubes|
|80 g||caster sugar|
|1 tsp||vanilla extract|
|Pinch of salt|
|130 g||plain or Greek yoghurt|
|Juice from 2 limes|
|Lme zest (from 1 lime)|
|2||QL Deli Fresh eggs|
|Fresh berries, whipped cream or lime slices for decoration|
- Place biscuits and ground cinnamon/nutmeg in a food processor (or use the dry grinder of your blender) together with the butter, process for 30 seconds until finely crushed and well mixed. Transfer into a medium bowl.
- Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin liners. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of biscuit mixture into each muffin cup, press down with the back of the spoon or use a wet finger to smoothen out the mixture.
- Chill the muffin pan in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 180 C.
- In the meantime, prepare the cheese topping. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and caster sugar with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Add vanilla extract, egg and salt, beat until well combined. Beat in yogurt, lime juice and lime zest until evenly mixed.
- Scoop in cheese topping until the muffin cups are two third full. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until the filling is set.
- Remove muffin pan and leave to cool on a wire rack. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Decorate with whipped cream, fresh berries or lime slices before serving.
QL Kitchen Tips
- Use lemon in place of lime if you prefer.
- If the oven temperature is too hot, it may cause the cheese topping to crack. Lower the temperature if you see this.
