1 Step

Melt the butter and mix with the crushed biscuit crumbs. Press into the base of a 20cm spring form cake tin. Chill it until you need it.

2 Step

Beat the Philadelphia until silky smooth. Add the milk, sugar, lemon rind and juice. Mix thoroughly.

3 Step

Dissolve the gelatine in 3 tablespoons of water, over a pan of hot water. Add to the Philadelphia mixture and then fold in the cream. Pour onto the (here's one I made earlier) crumb base and chill until set. Just before serving remove from the tin and decorate with something fruity.
