Cherries Cheesecake

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 300grs well matured cherries
  • 250grs mascarpone cheese
  • 200grs sugar
  • 8-10 digestive biscuits
  • 2 soup spoons of butter
  • optional, cherry liquor + a little vanilla essence


Put in a pan the cherries chopped + the sugar, boil it as if you were going to make jam, but you turn of the stove one step before it becomes jam, as you just want a delicious fruit compote, and then let it cool down completely.

Meanwhile place in a bowl the finely crunched digestives, the butter and half of the cherries liquor, mix all very well. Once well mixed place them in the container you wish to make the cheesecake spreading it evenly throughout the base and press firmly down with the base of a drinking glass.

Next step is to get another bowl and place there the mascarpone two thirds of the cooled compote and the remaining cherries liquor, mix all very well in a folding motion, and place the mix on top of the previously laid biscuits spreading it evenly....finally place the remaining compote on top of this in a circle smaller than the circumference of the cheesecake, and with a stick go around the circle line twirling circles over this one to get the same effect, or do it your own way hehe!! wil taste the same.

Finally refrigerate for a minimum of one hour and serve it with very strong black coffe for a treat. Bon Apettit!!
