Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour
Suitable for freezing
Melt the butter in a large saucepan, taking care that it
doesn't get too hot. Remove from the heat and stir in the biscuit
crumbs. Tip them into the base of a 23cm (9 inch) loose-bottomed cake
tin, pressing them down with your fist to make a firm base. Chill in the
fridge for about 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 170°C/fan oven 150°C/gas mark 3.
To make the filling, beat the low fat soft cheese in a
large mixing bowl until softened, then whisk in the condensed milk,
vanilla extract, eggs and lemon zest.
Pour the filling over the biscuit crumb base, then
sprinkle the blueberries over the surface. Transfer to the middle shelf
of the oven to bake for 1 hour, until set. Leave until completely cold.
Keep refrigerated and use within 3 days.
