    Following a recommendation, my Orkney Cheesecake is now made and in the fridge. Can't wait for dinner tomorrow night! Licking the bowl was divine so I am sure the proof will be in the pudding!

    My house....6pm!
    Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.

    I hate to tell you this but you've read the recipe wrong. It only has to chill for 5 hours. I'll be round at 5:30 am - just leave the back door open.

    Had my Orkney Fudge cheesecake last night (and the leftovers tonight) To say we were stuffed is an understatement. Too full up to contemplate the bread making......

    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
    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'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.

    Aha, D.R. Simpsons didn't have any left the last time I was in. You must have been in the queue before me.

    Could you manage another slice soon and could you bear to share with some other Orgers?
