Pineapple Lemon Cheesecake Cream Pie

Pineapple Lemon Cheesecake Cream Pie ~ Best of both - Cheesecake and Cream Pie in one, with a chocolatey crust AND it is a NO-Bake #Cheesecake #NoBake #CreamPie

The kids' favorite cheesecake is a Lemon cheesecake I usually make when I am out of ideas for dessert, or it has been specifically requested by one of them.

This time round I decided to make a Pineapple Lemon Cheesecake Cream Pie ~ quite a mouthful, but each word in the name is definitely worth mentioning.

One of the very few biscuit options which I am allowed to have, is fortunately the chocolate digestive biscuits which I used in this recipe and I totally love them.

It not only gives a light chocolate taste to the cheesecake, but it binds the crust perfectly with less butter needed, which is a good thing.

The pineapple and lemon works great together and has just the right sourness I like in a pie. You can also add more Icing Sugar to the whipped cream if you want to, but I prefer a cream topping which is not too sweet as it might take away most of the cheesecake - or other pie's - actual flavor.

INGREDIENTS:

200g Chocolate Digestive Biscuits, finely crumbled
1/4 cup Butter, melted

5 TB Cornflour
4 TB Caster Sugar
Grated Rind of 1 small Lemon

1 Egg Yellow
250g Low-Fat Cream Cheese, softened

1 cup Fresh Cream  {whipping cream/double cream}

Fresh Lemon slices, to garnish

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Mix together the Biscuit crumbs and the melted Butter - press into a lined, loose bottom pan.
2.) Combine the Cornflour, Caster sugar, Lemon Rind and Lemon Juice in a small saucepan - add the Pineapple {with the syrup} - cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens - remove from heat and let cool 2 - 3 minutes.
3.) Add the Egg Yellow, by quickly stirring it into the Pineapple mixture, followed by adding the Cream Cheese - stir well to combine.
4.) Pour mixture onto the prepared crust - chill 4 hours or until firm - transfer to a serving plate.
5.) Beat together the Cream and Icing Sugar until stiff peaks form - scoop or pipe onto the cheesecake.
6.) Garnish with the Lemon slices and serve.
