Individual Baked Cheesecakes

Individual Baked Cheesecakes 

9 Marie Biscuits (or any of your favourites)

2 tsp cocoa

80g butter (approx. depending on what biscuits you use)

250g cream cheese - room temperature

1/2 cup fine sugar

1/4 dessicated coconut

2 Tblsp fresh lemon (or orange) juice

1 tsp coconut essence (or whatever flavour you like - lemon)

2 eggs

Icing sugar, to dust

Preheat oven to 160C. Line a muffin tray with 9 scalloped muffin cups.

Crush biscuits, add cocoa and melted butter. Check the mix just stays together on your finger. Put in fridge while you make the filling.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar, coconut, lemon juice & essence until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time until combined. Divide the mix among the cups and bake for 25 mins or until just set. Turn the oven off and leave cheesecakes in the oven with the door ajar until completely cooled.

Remove and dust with icing sugar - or top with lemon curd if you like. Chocolate ganache would make for a decadent dessert!
