Equipment

  • Medium/Large Mixing Bowl
  • Hand Mixer
  • Spatula
  • Large Tray

Ingredients

  • 24 Digestive Biscuits (can sub Graham Crackers in US)
  • 1x 12oz/340g tub of Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup / 120ml cold Heavy/Double Cream
  • 1/3 cup / 50g Powdered/Icing Sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Fillings (i.e. Nutella, Strawberries) optional (see notes)

Instructions

  • In a medium/large mixing bowl pour in cream. Use a hand mixer to whip until it thickens and holds its shape. Slightly more than firm peaks, but not such much it turns into whipped cream.
  • Add in cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice. Whip again until evenly combined. At this point you can divide the mixture and fold in different fillings if you desire.
  • 1 heaped tbsp at a time, add to the centre of a digestive biscuit, then add another one on top and gently press down until the filling reaches the outside of the biscuit. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
  • Add to a large tray and pop in the fridge for 3-4 hours, or until the filling is nice and firm.

Notes

a) Fillings - After making the filling, I divided it into 3 and kept one the same, one I mixed in a dollop of Nutella and the other I folded in some diced fresh strawberries. Go wild and experiment with any flavour you fancy though! Just try and keep the consistency the same, so don't go adding in lots of liquid or thin syrups that'll thin out the mixture too much. Also just be aware with adding extra sweetness, you may want to reduce the amount of powdered sugar in the first instance. With the same token they are delicious just with the regular filling so don't feel like you need to add anything!
b) Make Ahead - You can make these a couple of days in advance, just tightly cover in the fridge. The longer you leave them the softer the biscuit goes, but they still hold up really well after a day or so.
c) Quantities - You'll probably end up making more than 12, especially if you add fillings. 12 is just the minimum if you're making sandwiches with a lot of filling.
d) Calories - Per sandwich without extra fillings.
