In partnership with Woolworths
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.
Lamington cheesecake layered Christmas dessert
Here’s what you need
Woolworths Lamington Cake
Strawberry no bake cheesecake
1 1/2 cups Woolworths Thickened Cream
3 tubs Woolworths Cream Cheese
1/2 cup caster sugar 3 tablespoons icing mixture
1/4 cup Woolworth Sour Cream
4 tablespoons Woolworths Strawberry Jam
1 pack Woolworths meringue nests
600 ml Woolworths thickened cream
2 tablespoons icing mixture
Woolworths Meringue Vanilla Minis
How to make it
Prepare and line a springform cake tin
Slice lamington cake thinly and cover the base of the cake tin
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.
Cover the set cheesecake with a layer of meringue nests.
Whip the thickened cream and icing mixture until thick and cover the meringue nests.
Fifth layer decorate the top with the mini meringues, berries and mint.
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!
