Mini Cheese Cakes
During the Ramadhan month , I stuck to simple recipes . I usually did the prep work in the morning , and then finished cooking later in the afternoon. The boys helped in the clean up , little guy wipes the dishes while the fussy one puts them away.
Anyway enough talk, I was flipping magazines online in my newly discovered website called issuu. com, when I came across this recipe on a magazine called Asda.
I tried this for Iftar ( thats the time when we break the fast at sunset). Its the kind of recipe where you can get the things ready assemble and hour ahead and leave to chill ( do not make this too early as the biscuits ends up soggy and falls apart, so 1 hour ahead of serving time , is the best time). The boys helped to assemble it, although I am pretty sure half of the berries went into their mouths rather than on the cheese cake.
Recipe : Mini Cheese Cakes recipe from Instant cheese cakes from Asda Magazine's September 2013 issue.
200g cream cheese ( I used Emborg )
2 tbsp icing sugar sifted
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
raspberry jam or preserve ( I used Bonne Mamman)
about 12- 16 marie biscuits.
1 small punnet blue berries
Place cream cheese in a bowl along with icing sugar vanilla and beat well.
Arrange the biscuites in a tray or serving plate, spread with a tsp or two of raspberry preserve or jam.
Top with a spoon or two of cream cheese and then a few blue berries.
Chill for an hour and serve !!. These are delicious!! Perfect little treat after a meal.
Ps . This little treat is great recipe for the kids to try their hand in cooking , as the method is very easy and no cooking involved.
