Easy No Bake Orange Cheesecake
Serves: Serves 6 to 8
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 - 8 ounce (200 gram) package of ginger cookies, crushed (about 20 cookies)

  • the grated rind of one orange

  1. To make the crust, mix the melted butter with the crushed cookies and press firmly into the base of a 7 inch (18 cm) loose bottomed cake tin. Put the crust in the fridge for 15 to 20 to set up a little.

  3. Remove the cookie base from the fridge and spread the filling carefully over top.
  4. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour or up to 16 hours.
  5. Run a knife around the edge of the cake tin and carefully remove the sides.
  6. Garnish the cheesecake as desired.
  7. Slice and serve.
