Ingredients:

For the base:

  • 300 g digestive biscuits or similar
  • 145 g melted butter

For the filling:

  • 300 g of mascarpone
  • 250g heavy cream, for whipping
  • 45 g of powdered sugar
  • 200 g strawberries, diced

For the ganache:

  • 150 g finely chopped white chocolate
  • 100 g fresh cream
  • Additional strawberries for decoration

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Ganache:
    • Finely chop the white chocolate and reserve it in a bowl.
    • Heat the cream in a small saucepan over low heat until hot but not boiling. Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Let cool.
  2. Make the base:
    • Crush the biscuits in a food processor until you obtain fine crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the melted butter until well combined.
    • Press the cookie mixture into the bottom and sides of a springform pan or lined 20/22cm cake ring. Chill in the refrigerator to set.
  3. Prepare the filling:
    • In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream with the powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the mascarpone until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
    • Add the diced strawberries. Pour the filling onto the cooled biscuit base, smoothing the top with a spatula.
  4. Add the Ganache:
    • Once the filling is smooth and even, pour the cooled ganache on top, spreading it to completely cover the filling, leaving a small border of filling visible around the edges.
  5. Cool and serve:
    • Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 2-3 hours or until set.
    • Before serving, decorate with additional strawberries as desired.
