“An easy cheesecake that will impress your guests. The tartness of the berries is a great mix with the richness of the creamy cheese filling. Make this cheesecake gluten-free by using gf ingredients and gf cookies for the base. You can also use other berries as variation to this recipe. To make the base of this recipe, I use 1 packet Freedom Foods Coconut Crunch biscuits and about 2/3 the wuantity of butter. I also use a 500 gram pack of frozen raspberries”
