While having a fish and chip lunch I came across this recipe in Business Baking Oct/Nov. '07 and it sounded yummy. Times are estimated and chilling time. For the decoration they did not specify amounts, so I am guessing them.

I made this recipe exactly as written with no deviations. This was a very easy recipe to make, but it was not as solid as a cheesecake should be. It was not runny, but it never fully set up. The flavor was very good and certainly made up for it not setting up properly.
