Lemon Meringue Cheesecake


Lemon Meringue Cheesecake recipe
 
One of my hubbys favorite desserts is lemon meringue pie. When this pie comes with an alternative cooler smoother side I believe it is worth a try. Check out this delicious cheesecake perfect for a summer time gathering. Yummy!
 
  • 375g butternut snap biscuits
  • 100g butter
Filling:
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 tsn powered gelatin
  • 280g jar lemon butter
  • 500g cream cheese
  • ¾ cup thickened cream
  • 110g white sugar
  • ½ lemon zest
Meringue:
  • Extra 80g water
  • Extra ¾ cup white sugar
  • 3 egg whites

Method:Line a 20cm cake tin with baking paper. Add the biscuits and butter into a food processor and process until well combined. Spoon mix into the cake tin and line the walls and base with the biscuit mix. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. Put the water and gelatin into a bowl and whish with a fork until well combined. Microwave for 30 seconds or until dissolved, cool. Whisk lemon butter until smooth. Add 4 tsn of the gelatin mix to the lemon butter and whisk.
Beat together the cream, cheese, sugar and zest into a bowl with an electric whisk for 5 minutes until smooth. Add the gelatin to the cheese mix and beat (if set microwave for 10 seconds). Pour cheese mix over the base. Spoon the lemon mix over the cheese layer. Place cake in the fridge for 3 hours minimum. Put extra water and sugar into a saucepan on medium heat cook stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Increase to high and place a candy thermometer in the sugar mix. Cook until the temperate hits 120 degrees then remove off the heat. With electric beaters whisk the egg whites on medium until soft peaks form. Increase speed to high, while beating in the sugar syrup in a steady stream. Beat for 10 minutes or until thick and glossy. Remove the cake from the tin and place onto a plate. Spoon the meringue onto the cake and blow torch the meringue until golden brown on top, serve.
