Pine lime splice ice creams remind me of my childhood, i loved the creamy vanilla ice cream and the zing pine lime ice, such a perfect combination for summer.

So I thought those flavours would make the perfect cheesecake.

The filling is creamy and packed with vanilla and the jelly is zingy made with pineapple juice and fresh lime juice.

I might love these flavours more in cheesecake…

Splice Cheesecake

Serves: 12

Ingredients

Base
12 lemon crisp biscuits, crushed
40g butter, melted

Filling
250g cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
300ml thickened cream
1 tablespoon water
1 and 1/2 teaspoon gelatin powder

Jelly
3/4 cup tinned pineapple juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon gelatin powder

Method

Base
Line a 8 inch springform cake tin with baking paper. Combine the crushed biscuits and melted butter in a bowl, mix well to ensure biscuits are fully coated, press the biscuits into the prepared tin. Place in the fridge while you prepare the filling.

Filling
Combine the water and gelatin mix well and sit aside for 5 minutes.

Place the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and mix with a handheld electric mixer, until smooth and creamy. Add the cream and mix until well combine and slightly thickened.

Microwave the gelatin for 5-10 seconds, until it is melted but not hot, add to the filling mixture and mix well.

Pour the filling onto the base and refrigerate for 3 hours or until set.

Jelly
Combine the water and gelatin and set aside for 5 minutes.

Place the juices in a small saucepan and heat gently until hot but not boiling, add the gelatin and remove from heat, stir until the gelatin dissolves fully. Leave the jelly to cool to room temperature, then pour on top of the cheesecake filling. Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours or until set.

Run a knife around the inside edge of the tin to loosen the sides and remove the cheesecake from the tin, place onto a serving plate. Enjoy!

  1. This is so Australian – especially with the use of the lemon crisp biscuits in the base. They are my favourite biscuits of all time. Love the recipe. margaret
