Baked White Choc Cheesecakes - Gluten free

Submitted by Queen of Puds 06 February 2012

Originally these weren't gluten free, but a quick swap of the base makes them so - just remember to check all packets (inc chocolate) to make sure they are also gluten free.  If you don't need gluten free, then the Bahlsen choc biscuits work really well.



1 x pack gluten free macaroons, or other biscuits of choice
- anything with chocolate on is ideal - 150 to 200g or thereabouts

50g butter or hard margarine, melted

400g cream cheese/quark/philadelphia

200g white chocolate, melted (e.g. 2 to 3 mins in microwave)

2 eggs

Zest of lemon (optional)

1 TBS granulated sugar

100ml double cream, or single cream, or yogurt, or even milk

Muffin tin & muffin cases.


Process biscuits into crumbs, pour in butter & mix till combined.

Divide evenly & press into the bases of muffin cases to depth 1cm (makes about 10)

Blend cream cheese with melted white choc, lemon zest, sugar, eggs & cream. Will be floppy like part whipped double cream - not thin.

Spoon cheese mix on top of biscuit bases to about ¾ full.

Bake approx 30 mins 190°/375°/Gas 5 till they seem done
- will have a little wobble in centre & starting to brown on edges - may crack on top - this is normal. They will sink back on cooling.

Serve with fruit sauce, fruit compote, or fresh fruit.

Option: Can substitute milk or dark chocolate for the
white, but omit the lemon zest & add a few dried cherries or raisins if you like.
