Non-bake Blueberry Cheesecake

As requested by Mama Damia, ZulBigo & Fairuz, here is a very simple, easy non-bake blueberry cheesecake recipe which never fail to satisfy my hubby's appetite for dessert. He called it "Nadine's specialty" :) Sorry, I have to make this entry as simple as possible as I am very busy lately. Ini pun it has been delayed for almost 2 weeks..huhu. Let say there's anything unclear or you have any inquiry, feel free to leave a comment, k.

Ingredients:

~Crust~
1 cup of crushed digestive biscuits(Grahams is not easy to find, I used McVities instead)
4 tbs of melted butter

~Filling~250g cream cheese
(any brand, I used Philadelphia's )

1 to 11/2 cup of fresh milk
30gm fine sugar
1 tsp of lemon zest

~Topping~
Blueberries in tin
(I used Wilderness brand as in the photo below, easily found at Cold Storage)



2 tbs of gelatin-optional (I used Halagel brand) *blueberry can also be substituted with strawberry :)
Method:
Crush or blend the biscuits with the food processor until the crumbs coarse.Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter to make it moist.Put a thin layer of the crushed biscuits at the base of the baking tin (I used the 9 inch size), compress it.Put the baking tin inside the refrigerator for an hour.


For the filling, beat the cream cheese with sugar, fresh milk and lemon zest inside the mixer with low speed for 1-2mins before switching to medium speed until the mixture become smooth, thick and creamy. Put the filling on top of the refrigerated crust. Put inside the freezer for minimum of 3 hours.


For the topping, you can either just topped the cake with the blueberries in tins, or can simply mix the dissolved gelatin with the blueberries before topping the cake to make a glaze effect :)


Senang kan?

FYI, this cheesecake was supposed to be placed into the baking tin with a removable base. As I don't have one and too lazy to shop for it I just used the normal baking tin but covered it with a layer of aluminium foil so that it can easily transferred from the tin. Hihi..talking about innovation of laziness :P
Let me share with you a tip. For the cake to be hard enough to be cut nicely (but soft enough to eat), put the cake into the freezer for 4-5hours and set it aside for half an hour before serving. During my first attempt of making this cheesecake (It was strawberry cheesecake), mine was really soft as I didn't refrigerated it cause mama told me it was unnecessary. Hihi...skali keluar..lembek je :P Luckily I put the rest of the cake (Uja tapau balik some..sian Uja makan cake lembik :D) into the freezer and walla, I can easily cut it and served it to Ibu & Ayah Dina when they came and pay us a visit. Lesson learned, so don't make the same mistake as me tau.. ;)

Happy trying & Indulging! :)
