I made one a wee while back - http://www.mrscake.co.nz/2010/12/strawberry-white-chocolate-cheesecake.html - but you can use gingernuts in place of whatever biscuits your recipe calls for. I added a little bit of ground ginger to my base as well. If you want to perpetuate the ginger flavour adding a couple of teaspoons of crushed ginger to the filling works well - just add to your taste (even better, gives you a legitimate excuse to sample!). :-)

I did a cheesecake with gingernut base and raspberries, went well together.

How do you guys crumb the gingernuts? They are so hard, I'm a bit scared to put them in the food processor as they make such a racket!

break them up into 1/4s first then the will still make a bit of racket but it will over quicker and drop them down the chute while the machine is going - and for added protection wear earmuffs lol

Ok. Here's my 4 ingredient cheesecake (sounds too good to be true but it really is fantastic). Gingernut base of butter and biscuits (home brand version crumbles better) = 2 ingredients. Stir together 1 tub sour cream with 1 can drained crushed pineapple = 2 more ingredients. Pour into biscuit base and bake for 20-30mins or until set. Chill. Eat. Marvel.

battgirl- how much butter? And how big a can of pineapple?

Excellent thank you, will definitely try this cheesecake.

Second that katewest...how much butter, how much pineapple? Sounds yummy!!! I used to work in a cafe that served these absolutely delicious cheescakes, they looked awesome. The chef would never ever give me the receipes, sigh! And their bases went all the way up the sides of the cheescake. Looked very imressive.
