Even if it’s the beginning of the year and we all make resolutions and detox, there’s still room in my house for a delicious cheesecake. So this is one that will really take very little time to make and it’s quite extraordinarily yummy. Try it and let me know how it tastes!
PREP TIME: 25 minutes

100g (3 oz) unsalted butter, cold and chopped
330ml (1⅓ cups) flour

Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
Process butter, flour and salt in a food processor to resemble crumbs. Add the milk and process just until combined and dough comes together. Roll out dough, line the base of a 24cm tin with baking paper. Cut to fit the base and sides of the tin. Prick base and chill for 30 minutes,
Line with baking paper and beans/weights. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Then remove the paper and weights and bake for a further 8-10 minutes. Reduce oven to 160°C (350°F).
