Lychee Cheese Cake

I made this for my Mom....she loves Lychees. Her favourite however is Fresh Lychees with Vanilla Ice-cream. My most fond memories with this wonderful fruit is when my mom would peel and chill them in the fridge, as i grabbed the whole bowl and indulged in those juicy Lychee's. This one is for you Momzeee...

Note : Use a 6" round Springform Pan or you may also use 6 indiviual serving bowls/ramekins

Ingredients for the Crust:
70g or 7 nos. digestive biscuit crumbs
30g Butter (unsalted & melted)

Mix the crust ingredients & press into a pan, cool in the fridge.
Ingredients for the Lychee Cheese filling:
120g canned lychee (blended into puree)
250g cream cheese
35g castor sugar or powdered sugar
8g gelatin
50g water
150g whipping cream

Dissolve gelatin in hot water.
Whisk cream cheese with sugar until smooth then blend in the puree.
Whisk the whipping cream to soft peaks then fold in the cheese mixture.
