    for the base
    1 normal size pack of digestive biccies (or use choc chip cookies for a change!)
    about 100 grammes of butter or margarine

    melt the butter, crumble the biccies, mix and press into a round sprung cake tin, the type that comes apart. cover the bottom bit with greaseproof paper to make it easier if you want to transfer the cake to a nice plate afterwards! place in fridge to harden while you make the filling.

    for the filling
    1 normal size pack of plain philadelphia cheese
    1 pack of jelly, any flavour you want, but the jelly squares are better than the powder!
    just enough boiling water to dissolve the jelly (3-4 tablespoons-ish)
    1 tub of whipping cream, about 300 ml i believe?

    - whip the cream to soft peaks
    - make up the jelly with the 3-4 tbs water (ignore the packet instructions!)
    - mix the dissolved jelly (whilst still hot) and the philly cheese to a smooth finish
    - mix the philly + jelly mixture with the whipped cream

    now just pour the filling onto the base and leave in the fridge until it has set, probably a couple of hours at least. the filling will look runny to start with, but DON'T panic, the jelly will make it set!

    sorry about the inaccurate measurements, i don't use recipes very often and this is one i made up about 6 or 7 years back which has proved a huge success!

    sounds wonderful - I will try that.

    I make one with the same base and then a mixture of philadelphia, double cream, lemon juice and caster sugar for the topping.........very nice but REALLY unhealthy!! Good for your calcium levels during pregnancy though :wink:
