    Default orkney fudge cheesecake

    finally something i can comment on!!
    We owned a pub/restaurant in Orkney & we got the receipe from our head chef!!
    Its all in the cream you use!!! Meadowland cream.....
    The only place i can get the stuff is the freezer centre in kirkwall i now live outside of inverness & cant get it so when my mum comes down she takes a case!!!
    To make the base you gentle heat in a pan crushed digestives with lots of syrup & butter til its stodgy!!!
    Lay it in the base of the cake tin put in fridge - then in your big bowl put the nearly whole carton of meadowland cream in it 2 x 200g of philidelphia cheese & start mixing with the electric mixer whilst doing this add a good dunk of caster sugar - then when the mixture starts to thicken start flaking the orkney fudge into it & finish the cake with the fudge flaked ontop for presentation too..... Yummy yum!!
    Hopeyou enjoy, i make them for all my home parties & when my friends are having dinner parties too - thornton fudge is also beautiful.. angela x

    Another good base for cheesecake is ginger nuts.

    I'm bringing this recipe to the top of the forum again. No apologies, it is absolutely decadent and totally right for this time of year. Enjoy!

    (Btw you can buy real Orkney Fudge Bars in Meiklejohn's shop in Thurso Street, Wick) Failing that, any fudge would do as a second best, I guess.

    You can get meadowland from Sutherland Bros in Wick.They also do the sweet one-Lactofil.
    When I was cheffing always bought it from them.I think you may need an account with them, but if you know any shopkeepers etc they may be abale to get it for you, but it only comes in a case of 12 i think.

    I have the greatest respect for my arteries which is why I believe in testing them once in a while with this recipe.

    Good luck floyed. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. Just make sure that no-one in the family is having their cholestorol checked on Monday.
