Ingredients

200g digestive biscuits crushed
100g melted butter

1 vanilla pod split
300g Viva Strawberries, halved

For the compote

Method

Line a 9” springform cake tin with greaseproof paper.

Mix the biscuits and melted butter, pat into the base of the cake tin and leave to set in the fridge.

Beat the cream cheese with icing sugar then fold the whipped cream and the seeds from the vanilla pod.

Spread a spoonful of the cream cheese mix onto the base, place sliced strawberries all around the side using the cream cheese to stand them in. Fill up with cream cheese and put in the fridge to set (around an hour).

Make the compote by putting chopped strawberries and sugar in a pan over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the strawberries have begun to break down.
