Whisk the cream until soft peaks form. Add the castor sugar and whip until stiff.

Whisk the cream cheese in a separate bowl until just softened and smooth. Fold the cream into the cream cheese along with the vanilla essence.

Crush the biscuits finely or process in a food processor.

Spoon a layer of biscuit crumbs into six or eight glasses or small glass bowls. Top with some of the cream-cheese mixture then some sliced strawberries. Continue layering until the glasses are filled. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To Make One Large Cheesecake:

Mix about 100ml melted butter with the biscuit crumbs and press into a baking tin or pie plate. Dissolve 20ml gelatine in 50ml water. Melt in the microwave and cool slightly. Stir some of the cream-cheese mixture into the gelatine, then stir it back into the cream-cheese mixture. Pour over the biscuit base and leave to set. Serve with sliced strawberries.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
