INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • Base
  • 1
    (250 g) packet plain sweet biscuits (I use Arnotts Nice Biscuits)
  • 125
    g butter (melted)
  • Filling
  • 4
    tablespoons icing sugar
  • 300
    ml cream (whipping cream)
  • Topping
  • 1 34
    cups water
  • 2
    tablespoons cornflour
  • 1
    cup sugar
  • 1
    (85 g) packet strawberry jelly crystals
  • 1
    (400 g) punnet strawberries

DIRECTIONS

  • For the base, crumb the biscuits using a food processor and add the melted butter.
  • Reserving 1/3 cup press remaining mix into a 9x13 dish. I like to use a glass dish to show off the layers.
  • For the filling, beat cream cheese and sugar together.
  • Whip the cream until soft peak stage and then fold into cream cheese mixture.
  • Spread over the base and place in fridge to chill.
  • For the topping, put the cornflour, water and sugar in a saucepan and boil until thickened.
  • Stir in the jelly crystals until all are dissolved.
  • Chill until cold and starting to set.
  • Slice strawberries and add to chilled jelly.
  • Spoon over the filling as evenly as possible.
  • Sprinkle the reserved 1/3 cup crumb mix over the top.
  • Refrigerate until jelly has set and you are ready to serve.
  • Cut into squares and remove carefully. I use a fish slice to do this.
  • Serve with some whipped cream on the side or on top of each square if desired.
