Ingredients

  • 4 level tbsp extra-light spread

  1. Melt the extra-light spread in a pan over a low heat. Add the crushed biscuits and stir to mix well. Spoon into a 22cm non-stick spring-form cake tin, pressing down firmly to make a smooth and even base. Chill until needed.

  4. Remove the cheesecake from the tin, cover with cling film and chill for 6-8 hours or overnight if possible.
  5. When you’re ready to eat, spread the fromage frais over the top of the cheesecake and dust with the extra cinnamon.
  6. Cut into slices and serve with orange segments.
