Tim Tam Cheesecake

What to do with excess Tim Tams? This was the question I was asking myself when I realised that I had bought too many Tim Tam bulk packs! When I bought them, I had the full intention of bringing them to work or to youth group to share, and I did! I just bought too many. I thought about bringing them some more, but I wanted to seem like I was bringing them something totally original, rather than just something out of my pantry.

This brought me to research Tim Tam recipes and the one that was the simplest and seemed the tastiest was the Tim Tam Cheesecake. I borrowed the recipe from bestrecipes.com.au and tweaked it ever so slightly to suit my time and ingredient limitations. Below is what I came up with.

  • 10 Tim Tams
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp gelatin
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 200g chocolate cookies
  • 70g butter
  • 150g thickened cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

  1. In a food processor blitz the chocolate cookies into a fine crumb. (For this batch I used Tiny Teddy chocolate cookies.)
  2. Pour the melted butter into the food processor and mix until well combined
  3. Pour the cookie mixture into the tin and press down well with a spoon or tumbler
  4. Chop 8 tim tams roughly
  5. In a mixing bowl, mix together the thickened cream and sugar.
  6. To the mixture add the cream cheese, and vanilla essence and mix well with the beater.
  7. In a separate small bowl mix the boiling water and the gelatin. Stir well, until the gelatin has all dissolved.
  8. Add the gelatin into the cream mixture and mix well.
  9. Add the roughly chopped tim tams into the cream mixture and mix well.
  10. Pour the mixture into the tin.
  11. Chill in the refrigerator for a few hours.
  12. Once ready to serve, chop up the remaining Tim Tams and sprinkle on top for decoration.
