No-Bake Mincemeat Cheesecake

This easy no-bake mincemeat cheesecake is great for Christmas parties and winter get-togethers. It has all the rich seasonal flavours but is kept light by the yogurt in the mix. An excellent alternative to Christmas pudding.
Servings: 8 slices
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time12 hrs
Total Time12 hrs 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 110g chocolate digestive biscuits - Graham crackers
  • 50g butter
  • 130g yogurt
  • 160g cream cheese - full-fat
  • 130g mincemeat (sweet)
  • 100ml double cream - heavy cream

Instructions

  • Grease and line the base of a 6" (15 cm) loose bottomed tin.
  • Crush the biscuits to make fine crumbs.
  • Melt the butter. Mix the butter and biscuit crumbs together and press into the base of the prepared tin.
  • Mix the yogurt, cream cheese and mincemeat together in a bowl.
  • Whip the cream until it holds a peak, and fold into the yogurt mixture.
  • Pour the cream and yogurt mix over the biscuit base in the tin and smooth the top.
  • Cover with cling film and chill overnight before carefully removing from the tin to decorate and serve.

Notes

  • This recipe makes a fairly modest cheesecake, to serve 68 people but can be easily scaled up for a larger gathering.
  • For an 8" tin you need about 1.8 times the mix, and for a 9" tin about double the amount.
  • For the base you could use crushed ginger biscuits, graham crackers or shortbread, in place of the digestives.
  • Try caramelizing some apple or pear slices in calvados to make a topping for your no-bake Christmas cheesecake.
  • The cheesecake will keep in the fridge for several days.   
  • Leftovers can be frozen in an airtight box for up to 3 months.
