This gorgeous cheesecake slice is the most delicious treat to tuck into with a cup of tea for a quiet mid-morning break. It has a delicious biscuit base to add a little crunch to every bite and it beautifully balanced by the creamy cheesecake on top. This version uses blueberries, but you can swap them for blackberries, raspberries, or any other berry you like. The addition of lemon zest adds the perfect finish with that lovely refreshing hit to cut through the sweetness. Serve it up to your guests with a dusting of icing sugar or enjoy all to yourself at home!
