Christmas desserts are my favourite desserts of the year. I love coming up with ideas, researching and buying the Christmas magazines and coming up with new ideas that will wow my guests. We host Christmas and I’m in charge of desserts.

This year I’ve come up with this layered dessert that incorporates all the things I love about Australian summers. Lamingtons, meringues and fresh berries.

Second layer

Whip the thickened cream and set aside.

Beat the cream cheese and caster sugar together with a hand beater or in a mixer until smooth. (make sure you scrape the bowl to get anything that didnt get mixed in).

Add the icing mixture, sour cream and jam and beat for about 2 minutes, until smooth and properly mixed, with no lumps.

Fold the whipped cream in gently with a spatula so that you don’t lose the fluffiness.

Make sure it’s all combined and pour over the lamington.

Put in the fridge to set all day or overnight.

If you would like to make a strawberry coulis to drizzle here is how – Chop five strawberries and add to a small saucepan with a splash of water and a teaspoon of caster sugar. cook over medium heat until the strawberries are mushy. Push them through a sieve and collect the strawberry sauce underneath. Use this to drizzle!

I hope you enjoy  the lamington cheesecake layered Christmas dessert as much as we did!
