Mini Frozen Lemon Cheesecakes

Frozen Mini Lemon Cheesecakes

  • 10 Arnott’s Granita Biscuits
  • 250 grams Coles Brand Spreadable Cream Cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Masterfoods Lemon Butter, plus extra to serve
  • 500 ml Coles Brand Classic Vanilla Ice-cream
  • 2 tbsp Finely Chopped Pistachios

  • Line 10 large muffin cups with paper cases.  Place a biscuit in the base of each case.
    Mix together cream cheese and lemon butter in a large bowl with a wooden spoon.
    Scoop spoonfuls of ice cream in and leave for 5 mins to soften,
    Using a metal spoon combine ice cream and cream cheese mixture and immediately spoon into paper cases.
    Freeze for 4 hours or overnight,
    Serve with extra lemon butter and pistachios (optional),

    Dessert is one of my favourite things.  We usually have a something twice a week.  Normally its something I have baked like cake or muffins but last week the HOTH (being a bit of a smart ass) saw this recipe in the coles magazine and made a few comments on how these looked out of my league to make, so I did!!

    Talk about easy and delicious.  Seriously yum and the best bit is that being frozen they cannot be packed in a lunchbox so dessert is done for the next week or so!! 

    You can use any cream cheese, ice cream or lemon butter and I used ginger nuts as my supermarket did not have granitas.  Next time I will see how a different flavour jam goes.

    Linking up with One Mother Hen for some Monday Open Slather!!

    2. Yum!! They look delicious, no doubt they'd be a hit in the lunchboxes. Thanks for sharing :)

    3. Now that's my sort of recipe - easy and yummy!

    4. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing it. So easy, I love that the biscuit is the base.

    5. Yum! What a great recipe. Lemon butter always reminds me of my grandma! I love the flavour of lemon and pistachios together - delicious! Thank you for linking up with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party! Xxx
