Paysan Breton Cheesecake Pots with Stewed Plums and Orange

Individual cheesecake pots, the perfect winter dinner party dessert.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

What You’ll Need:

  • 400g digestive biscuits
  • 60g butter, melted
  • 6 plums, destoned and quartered
  • 1 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • Juice and zest of 2 large oranges
  • 1 tub of Paysan Breton French Sea Salt cream cheese (150g)
  • 150ml double cream

What to do:

  • First make the base: place the digestive biscuits in a food processor and blitz until crumb like. If you do not have a food processor, place them in a sealed sandwich bag and bash with a rolling pin.
  • Tip the digestive biscuit crumb into a bowl and stir through the melted butter until all the biscuits are well coated. Distribute between 4 glasses, pressing down the base until it’s compact.
  • Place in the fridge to chill and set while you make the filling.
  • In a small saucepan, add the quartered plums, the soft brown sugar and the juice and zest of 1 of the oranges. Place on a medium heat and leave to simmer to allow the plums to break down and a sweet and sticky sauce to form.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the cream cheese, double cream and the zest and juice of the remaining orange.
  • Take the 4 glasses out the fridge and spoon in the cheesecake mix. Top with the stewed plums and finish by spooning over the sticky sweet plum sauce.
