Zest of one lemon
1 tsp vanilla essence
200g rose jam

Preparation method
1. Mix together the ingredients for the base and press into the prepared 24 cm tin and then refrigerate.
2. For the cheesecake filling, into a large bowl beat the cream cheese with the lemon and the vanilla essence until soft.
