I was thinking of making these for the weekend - we dont have any strawberry topping, but I have just make some of the strawberry liqueur from this thread:  http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=11569.0

Could I use this instead do you think, or will the alcohol in it stop them setting??

Just looked at the patty pans we have in the drawer, and I wouldnt have thought that a biscuit would fit in the base of the patty pan?  Did you use extra large patty pans, or muffin tins to be able to fit the biscuit into the base?

Might have to try this using the liqueur, when I make some more. Sorry cant help you but will be interested in hearing how it went.

Karen when I've made these I just left out the strawberry topping, as we don't have any either.  I think it made a difference.

Also I microwaved the biscuits for a few seconds each to make them softer, so then it's easier to make them fit in the patty pan case (as your right, they don't quite fit!).  As I'm typing this I'm remembering you don't have a microwave!!   ;D

But I have a steam oven Katie - that might work just as well  ;D ;D ;D

Of course, if they dont work out, I will just have to keep them all for myself.  Cant be giving failures away to other people, can i  :-)) :-))

I made a double batch of these tonight:  I used Arnotts Choc Ripple biscuits, warmed slightly in the oven to soften them, and they pressed into the base of the muffin pans just perfectly.  I also used the strawberry liqueur from here:  http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=11569.0  instead of strawberry topping.  They set perfectly, and are absolutely delicious!   Thanks for a wonderful, tasty, and very easy recipe.  :-* :-* :-*

Thank you so much for this fantastic recipe. I made the Cherry Ripe and the Honeycomb ones for a Melbourne Cup lunch. Everyone loved them. I used Crunchie instead of Violet Crumble and I would have to say I loved them both but Crunchie was my favourite. This is a really easy recipe and are made so quickly. Will make these very often.

The strawberry liqueur addition should delectable, apologies Karen for not being near this thread or the forum for most of the week hence your questions were ignored by me.  Pleased that you enjoyed this dessert - I always use muffin trays but still heat the biscuits to ensure a snug fit into the bottom  :)  :)

Cheesecakes usually last some time in the fridge so you'd have no trouble making them a day or two in advance - unless there is a problem of little elves sneaking into your fridge and pinching them.

I agree with JD. Maybe you could even squeeze Day 3 out of them, but after that they wouldn't be that nice.

Definitely not listening. La la la la la ..I agree with a couple of days, I don't think they will last that long.
