You MUST try the cheesecake
I don’t usually even like cheesecake but loved this one taken from the 2016 Dairy Diary.

1 Mix together butter and biscuits. Press into the base of a 20.5cm (8in) round loose-based tin. Chill for 10 minutes to firm.
2 Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl. In a saucepan heat cream until almost simmering then pour over chocolate. Stir well until chocolate has melted then leave to cool.
