Those who know me will know that I love cheesecake. While pregnant with my second son, I once ate a whole baked cheesecake from The Grapevine Coffee Shop in Sunnyside, Pretoria... it was bliss, and he was a sweet baby! Sometimes there is no time for baking cheesecakes, so here's a quick and easy recipe for those rushed days.

1 packet Tennis biscuits
1 tablespoon butter
1 tin condensed milk
1 tub fat-free smooth cottage cheese
half a cup lemon juice

Crush the Tennis biscuits into crumbs.
Mix the crumbs and the butter together, and press mixture into a pie dish.
Combine the condensed milk with the cottage cheese, add the lemon juice. Whisk it all together until smooth.
Pour onto the biscuit base and smooth over.
You can add granadilla pulp or fresh strawberries on top.
Refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.
Makes 6 to 8 servings
