Ingredients

  • 90 g Unsalted butter
  • 300 g Shortbread biscuits
  • 600 g Soft cream cheese
  • 120 g Caster sugar
  • 50 ml Baileys Strawberries & Cream Liqueur (regular Baileys works too)
  • 300 ml Double cream
  • 150 g Lindt Strawberries and Cream Truffles
  • Red food colouring paste
  • 300 g Strawberries
  • 50 ml Baileys Strawberries & Cream Liqueur

Instructions

  • Lightly grease an 8 inch loose base cake tin. (I also added a greaseproof paper circle at the bottom to help it off the base later)
  • Melt the butter gently in the microwave or in a pan and then take off the heat.
  • Crush the shortbread biscuits in a food processor. Or put the shortbread in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to break them up.
  • Put the biscuit crumbs in a bowl and add the melted butter. Stir until all the biscuits are coated in the butter.
  • Scoop the crumbs into the tin and push down to make a hard layer. Put in the fridge for 20-30minutes to harden.
  • In a bowl cream together the cream cheese and caster sugar until the sugar has dissolved and is well distributed.
  • Stir in the Baileys strawberries and cream.
  • In a new bowl lightly whip the double cream until it starts to thicken.
  • Stir in the double cream into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Lightly chop the strawberries and cream truffles and stir them in to the mix.
  • Take a quarter of the mixture and add to a new bowl. Stir in a little of the red food colouring to get a beautiful pink colour.
  • Take the base out of the fridge and spoon the cream cheese mixture on top adding dollops of the pink mixture throughout and swirling it around.
  • Put the cheesecake back in the fridge and leave for at least 1 hour until it has set.
  • Chop up the fresh strawberries and place them on top. Drizzle more of the Baileys on top and serve.
