Cheesecake Supreme - Cheesecake Supremo

Mum at her communion
One of those enduring memories is a child's First Communion...the mini brides of Christ... regardless of your religious leanings, one of the most spectacular parts of the communion celebration - was  the after party!  It seemed all the women of the family would out do themselves to produce spectacular feasts to celebrate the day!

One of those amazing cakes was what we termed the Cheesecake Supreme!  And once you make and taste this you wont disagree!!



Cheesecake Supreme











  • 2 cups plain sweet biscuit crumbs
  • 125g of butter or margarine melted
  • 3 x 250g cream cheese packets
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of Cointreau
  • Strawberries
  • Red currant Jelly
  • Whipped Cream


Put crumbs into a bowl, add the melted butter and mic in thoroughly.  Press over base and up sides of a springform tin which has been greased.  Chill thoroughly.

Have the cream cheese softened at room temperature, beat until smooth.  Gradually beat in the sugar, add the eggs, beat in thoroughly.  Mix in the liqueur and pour into the crumb crust.

Bake in a slow oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, leave in oven, heat turned off, door open, until cold, then chill.  Wash and hull the strawberries, pat dry.  Gently heat red currant jelly with liqueur, stirring constantly, until melted (for 1/4 cup jelly use 3 teaspoons liqueur).

Chill melted jelly until beginning to set, then dip each strawberry, coating all over.  Arrange them on a a wire rack covered with baking paper, stem down, let set.  Decorate the top of the cheesecake with piped whipped cream and the glazed strawberries.

Eat with abandon!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
