Lancewood Lemon Meringue Cheesecake

Ingredients

Crust:

200 g digestive biscuits , finely crushed
100 g unsalted butter , melted

Filling:

500 g LANCEWOOD® Full Fat Plain Cream Cheese , at room temperature
140 g castor sugar
30 ml cake flour
3 extra large egg(s)
250 g LANCEWOOD® Sour Cream , at room temperature
125 ml lemon juice
2 lemon(s) , finely grated zest of both lemons

Lemon curd:

130 g castor sugar
125 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 lemon , finely grated zest
60 g unsalted butter
3 extra large egg(s) , 1 whole egg & 2 yolks

OR

250 ml lemon curd

Swiss meringue:

2 extra large egg(s) , whites only
120 g castor sugar

Method

Crust:
Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray 20cm springform pan with non-stick spray or line with baking paper.

Add butter to crushed biscuits and mix. Press onto base and up sides of springform pan.

Place on baking sheet. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes and remove from oven. Leave to cool.

Filling:
Increase oven temperature to 230°C.

Beat cream cheese with electric beater until creamy and smooth.

Add castor sugar and cake flour and mix. Add eggs one at a time. Add sour cream, lemon juice and lemon zest and mix well.

Pour onto prepared crust and bake for 10 minutes.

Turn temperature down to 110°C and bake for further 30 minutes.

Switch oven off and leave to cool in oven (for at least 2 hours).

Lemon curd:
Combine castor sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and butter in saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar has melted.

Beat egg and egg yolks in separate bowl. Add small amounts of the warm mixture to sugar and butter mixture while stirring continuously.

Pour back into saucepan and stir continuously over low heat until mixture starts to thicken – it will cover the back of a spoon if it’s ready. Do not let it boil.

Cool before use. If you need it to cool quickly, spread over a flat baking sheet that’s been cooled in the freezer.

Swiss meringue:
Beat egg whites and castor sugar in a heatproof bowl. Place bowl over saucepan of boiling water – bowl should not touch water.

Beat for 5 - 7 minutes until thick. Transfer to cool bowl and beat for further 3 - 5 minutes to cool down.

To assemble:
Spread lemon curd over cooled cheesecake and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Spoon or pipe meringue over lemon curd layer and brown lightly with kitchen blow torch.
