Cheesecakes are on the same level as lemon curd and custard as far as satisfaction from baking goes. They only take 10 mins of preparation and turn from raw ingredients into a delicious dessert like magic. These cupcake sized mini cheesecakes used a gluten free crust and were decorated with strawberries and blueberries to form the Union Flag (for St George’s Day on 23rd April). I didn’t sweeten the fruit, but the biscuit base and filling used enough sugar to provide sweetness.

I used gluten free digestives which didn’t seem to hold together as well during baking, but you could substitute these for regular biscuits of any type (I’ve been meaning to try gingersnaps).
