    Press the biscuit mixture into the base and sides of a 25cm loose based tart tin.

    Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

    Whisk together the double cream and icing sugar until smooth peaks form.

    In a separate bowl, whisk the mascarpone, caster sugar, lime juice and vanilla extract until no liquid remains on the surface.

    Gently fold the 2 mixtures together before transferring to the biscuit base.

    Top the cheesecake with the sliced strawberries, lime zest and mint leaves.

    Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
