From Jane's Parish Cook Book





Now that there are a few occasions coming up with the Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, there will be parties and this is a summery solution to an almost instant dessert.

700g Philadelphia cheese

110g digestive biscuits

25g butter

juice and zest of 1 large orange

50g caster sugar

225g strawberries

1 punnet blueberries

1 x 8” flan tin with loose base

  1. Melt the butter, then crush the biscuits to fine crumbs using a rolling pin or a food processor.  Combine the two ingredients in a basin. Press the mixture into the base of the flan tin.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and orange juice until completely smooth and free from lumps.  Then beat in the zest.
  3. Pour the mixture into the flan tin, spreading it out evenly, cover with foil and chill for at least 4 hours.
  4. Loosen from the tin and decorate with the strawberries & blueberries.
