    Tiramisu Cheesecake

    The ingredients from the classic Italian dessert, re-arranged into a tempting cheesecake. As an alternative to the sponge fingers try different fillings such as apricots, cherries, or one of the range of Bonne Maman compotes.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes plus 30 minutes chilling
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 8

    Ingredients

    • 200g Doria Amaretti Biscuits, crushed
    • 50g butter, melted
    • 1 tbsp instant coffee
    • 2 tbsp brandy
    • 4 tbsp hot water
    • 10 Waitrose Sponge Fingers
    • 2 x 250g tubs of Galbani Mascarpone Cheese
    • 40g icing sugar, sifted
    • Cocoa powder for decoration

    1. Mix together the amaretti biscuits and melted butter and press into the base of a 18cm spring-sided or loose-bottomed cake tin.
