    Hi Girls,
    A friend made this scrummy cheesecake and I just had to have the recipe - It is really good !!

    Lemon Raisin Cheesecake
    Base
    3oz butter or margarine
    9 digestive biscuits.
    Crush digestives, mix with melted butter and use to line an 8 inch lined, loose bottomed tin.

    Filling
    4oz seedless raisins or sultanas (chopped if not using a food processor)
    12oz cream cheese
    2 eggs
    4oz sugar
    2tsp vanilla
    Put all of the above in the food processor and blend till smooth. Pour onto digestive base and bake at 175C for about 25 mins or until firm(ish) to touch and starting to brown.

    Glaze
    3oz sugar
    half oz corn flour
    quarter pint water (scant measure)
    juice of half a lemon
    1 beaten egg
    half oz butter
    2oz seedless raisins or sultanas
    Blend sugar, corn flour, water and butter in a pan, bring to the boil then simmer and allow to thicken stirring all the time. Add the lemon and raisins/sultanas remove from heat and allow to cool a while. When cool enough beat in the egg (be careful or the egg will scramble). Spread the glaze on top of the filling and cool in the fridge.
    Freezes really well.

    Really would recommend it !!

    Hi,
    I have Emailed an English friend in Texas, so I will see what answer she can find out.
    Other than that, I looked up the English equivalents to Digestive biscuits and it came up with Graham Crackers - have you heard of them? ( I do not know what they would be like !)
    The only other suggestion I have is, have you got any English Departments in any food stores ? -- ooh I do miss Publix !!!
    Regards Dotty D.

    Ok, I scrolled farther and found what digestive biscuits are. Now, what is corn flour (corn starch?) And with the half ounce of that and the 3 oz sugar, use a measuring cup or do you weigh it? I know a lot of "foreign" recipes use ingredients that are weighed on a scale, and the measuring cups are only for liquids.

    Good Morning,

    I have looked up corn flour equivalent and, yes - it is corn starch.
    I do weigh all my ingrediants - I have got measuring cups in case I do a recipe that is in "cup" measurements.
    I also read that Graham Crackers are sweeter than our Digestive biscuits, so you may want to cut down on the sugar a little - try it for taste !!
    Hope you enjoy it !!

    Check the cookie aisle of your local grocery store. You can buy digestive cookies. They have been my mom's cookie of choice with her afternoon tea as long as I can remember...and you don't want to know how long that is!!! LOL

    I miss digestive biscuits! Loved them in England. Our son was a Professor at Imperial College in London.
