  • Makes 10-12 servings
  • Crust
  • 5 oz (150 g) digestive biscuits
  • 4 tbsp (60 g), unsalted butter, melted
  • Filling
  • 1 pound (500 g ) cream cheese
  • 8 oz (200 g) sour cream
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Garnish
  • Black grapes cut into halves
  • Sea-buckthorn Berries
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 150C (300 F).
  2. Crush digestive biscuits. Melt butter and blend with crushed biscuits until ingredients are evenly moistened. Press biscuits mixture with the back of the spoon into bottom of a 20 cm (8 inch) or if you don't want that tall use a 10 inch (26 cm) spring form pan (with a removable base). 
  3. For the cheese filling beat cheese, sour cream, lemon zest, vanilla extract, honey and sugar in a food processor until well blended. Start adding the eggs one at a time until each egg is absorbed. Pour the filling over the prepared crust. 
  4. Bake for 40-50 minutes until the cheesecake is set. Run a sharp knife completely around the inside edge of the pan. Let it cool completely at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  5. To serve, remove sides of the pan. Garnish the cheesecake with grape halves and powdered sugar and use Sea-buckthorn Berries for contrast.
