3 teaspoon gelatine powder (Sundew gelatine)
2 x tubs cream cheese softened (Lancewood smooth)
1⁄2 cup castor sugar
200 mls thickened/ fresh/ low fat cream

1. Process biscuits until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix in butter & combine.
. Press mixture evenly over base & up ½ the side of a 20 cm spring-form tin. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until firm.
