Full Method


  1. Preheat oven 170C Gas Mark 5
  2. Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Rub in the butter, and stir in the sugar. Bring together to form a dough.
  3. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface, to the thickness of a 2p coin. Using a 5cm round cutter, cut out 6 biscuits, and place on to a lightly greased baking tray. Bake for 12 -15 minutes. Remove from the tray on to a cooling rack.
  4. When biscuits are cold, put into a plastic bag and crush lightly using a rolling pin. Put biscuit crumbs into a bowl with the melted butter and honey and stir together.
  5. Place two deep metal rings on a baking tray, press the biscuit mixture into the base and leave to set.


  1. Mix together cream cheese, double cream, honey and the juice of half a lemon in a large bowl. Spoon the mixture on to the biscuit base, chill for 20 minutes.


  1. Keep 6 whole strawberries. Slice the rest of the strawberries into a bowl, add the remaining lemon juice and icing sugar. Crush with a fork or blend in a food processor. Pour mixture through a sieve to remove any seeds.
    To serve: slice the rest of strawberries and place on top of the cheesecakes. Drizzle over the coulis.
