Ingredients
  

For the base:

  • 250 g digestive biscuits crushed
  • 125 g unsalted butter melted
  • ¼ cup 60g granulated sugar

For the filling:

  • 600 g cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup 60ml lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups 500ml thickened (whipping) cream, whipped stiff peaks

  • Serve: Top with additional feijoa slices, if desired.

Notes

Tips:
