No-bake lemon cheesecake tips

This recipe starts off right with butter and the slight coconut flavour of Tennis Biscuits. You can make the crust only at the bottom or all around the edges. If you want to get creative, try a berry topping too. You can macerate some berries by adding sugar to them to draw out the juices and give you a soft and sweet topping. You can however also use fresh fruit like strawberries as a topping here. Each bite is creamy, sweet and a little bit zesty with the slight crunch from the biscuit crust.
