Here is what you will need to serve 8-10

  • 150g Digestive Biscuits
  • 50g Unsalted Butter
  • 450g Full Fat Cream Cheese (I use Philadelphia)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 110g Icing Sugar
  • 150ml Sour Cream
  • 200ml Double Cream


Essential Equipment

  • Electric Stand Mixer or Large Bowl & Electric Hand Whisk
  • 21.5cm (8.5″) Springform Baking Tin

First very lightly grease the base and sides of your baking tin and line the base with baking paper.

Then in a food processor, blitz the biscuits until they become fine crumbs. (Alternatively you can bash them in a plastic food bag with a rolling pin until you get the same result.)

Melt the butter in the microwave in a small bowl in 10 second intervals then pour into the crumbs and blitz again briefly until it resembles wet sand. (If using a bag/rolling pin, tip the crumbs into a bowl and pour over the melted butter. Mix until you get the same result.)

Next, tip the biscuit crumb into your prepared tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon. Pop into the freezer to firm up while we make the filling.

Making the Cheesecake Filling

In an electric stand mixer or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk, beat together the cream cheese, vanilla extract & icing sugar. Make sure you sift in the icing sugar so you don’t get any lumps.

Start slow until the icing sugar is mixed in then increase to a medium speed and beat for a couple of minutes until it’s smooth and light.

Then scrape down the bowl, pour in the sour cream & double cream and beat on a medium speed for another couple of minutes until it’s really thick, shiny & creamy.

Finally, pour the mixture over your prepared base and smooth out with a spatula. Place into the fridge to set for at least 4 hours. Overnight is fine too.

When your cheesecake is set, carefully remove from the tin and slide onto a serving plate. Slice, serve and enjoy!

Store any uneaten cheesecake in the fridge and consume within 3 days. (Not that there will be any left to test this theory!)

This is honestly the nicest, lightest, creamiest No Bake Vanilla Cheesecake I have ever eaten. I even surprised myself with how good it is! It’s so easy to jazz it up too. You could make a fruit compote to drizzle on top, spoon over lashings of chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, warm lemon curd or even top with fresh berries and scatter with icing sugar to finish. It’s just as beautiful as it is though!

I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.

      Hi Carol. I’m based in the UK and we use weight as opposed to volume as it’s much more accurate.
