Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla-flavoured wafers (such as Nilla)
  • 1/2 cup whole almond
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
Berry Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 cups mixed fresh berries
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
Filling:
  • 1 pkg (7 g) unflavoured gelatin
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 pkg (each 8 oz/250 g) cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Method

In food processor, pulse wafers with almonds until fine. Drizzle in butter, pulsing until moistened. Press into parchment paper–lined 9-inch (2.5 L) square metal cake pan. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm, about 12 minutes. Let cool on rack.

Filling: In small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over water; let stand until softened, 5 minutes. Heat over low heat until melted, about 2 minutes.

In large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; beat in condensed milk, cream, gelatin mixture, lemon rind and lemon juice. Spread over base; refrigerate until set, 4 hours.

Berry Sauce: Meanwhile, in small saucepan, bring sugar, lemon juice and water to boil, stirring. Reduce heat; simmer until syrupy, 2 minutes. Pour over berries in bowl, tossing to coat. Refrigerate until cold, 1 hour.

Strain berry juice into saucepan. Place berries in bowl. Whisk cornstarch into juice; cook over medium heat until thickened, 1 minute. Pour over berries; toss to coat. Serve over cheesecake squares.
