The Proof is in the eating……………

You may remember I posted this a few days ago.
Well I made it today using the exact quantities as per my recipe (well, maybe a little less fat but not much) and this was the result.

The foil pie dish I used was 2 inches deep and seven inches across, so the biscuit crumb was quite thick.
I have a 150w hand mixer which is ideal for whipping things up and making my sponges.
The cream cheese is a non-brand at 59p for 200g and 300 ml of double cream cost 89p.

All whipped up and nowhere to do………….. except into the fridge

It looks like my neighbour and I will be having this for a few days as Hubby had one portion and it triggered his reflux within five minutes.
So if you want less biscuit base (and less calories) you can easily halfย  those ingredients from my recipe for a dish this size.

And yes, it tasted as good as it looks!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Ohh! Looks even better than I thought it would. Now I’ve got to see if I can get the ingredients. The grocery has been out of most dairy products…

  3. Nom nom nom!! โค That looks AMAZING! I'm sorry your hubby can't indulge (can he take medication to stave off the reflux?) ..but that leaves more for you and your neighbor, doesn't it? A silver lining of a sort!

    • His reflux was supposed to be resolved two years ago, and after following it up, he was supposed to have surgery this year after delaying it because of Dick. I’m glad he didn’t as the hospital where he would have had it done has several cases of Covid-19, so he wouldn’t have it now if they begged him. We find certain foods aggravate it so avoid them. He was hopeful he wouldn’t have a reaction today, but sadly he did. He has meds for it though and a few natural remedies he discovered on the internet like DGL chewable liquorice (deglycyrrhizirated liquorice extract) that work. No chocolate, no sweet stuffs (or very little) and basic food, which is what we have as a matter of course anyway.
