With summer fast approaching there’s no better way to celebrate the silly season than whipping out a a good quality jam to create some tasty home made treats. 


  • Base

  • 200g shortbread biscuit

  • 75g butter, melted

  • 4 tablespoon desiccated coconut

  • Filling

  • 250g cream cheese, room temperature

  • 250g mascarpone cheese, room temperature

  • 160g icing sugar, sifted

  • Zest of 2 limes

  • Hank’s Orange & Lime Marmalade

  • ½ fresh ripe pineapple, thinly sliced into small pieces

  • 2 ripe mangoes, diced

  • Mint to garnish


  • 1.

    Place the shortbread into a food processor and roughly blitz until the biscuits resemble fine bread crumbs. Add in the melted butter and coconut and pulse until the mixture comes together.

  • 2.

    Place 3-4 tablespoons of the biscuit mixture into four 250ml sized jars.  Press the mixture down with your fingertips. Refrigerate. Set aside about 1/3 cup of the leftover biscuit base to garnish the top later.

  • 3.

    In the bowl of an electric mixer place the cream cheese, mascarpone, icing sugar and lime zest. Beat the mixture until smooth. Add in ¼ cup of Hanks Orange & Lime Marmalade and gently mix to combine.

  • 4.

    Place the filling into a piping bag or alternatively make one from a zip lock bag by snipping off a corner. Pipe a layer of filling on top of the base.

  • 5.

    Add a layer of sliced pineapple pieces and repeat with another layer of filling.

  • 6.

    Add a layer of diced mango and finish off with a layer of filling.

  • 7.

    Heat a small saucepan and brush some of the leftover pineapple and mango with Hank’s Orange and Lime Marmalade. Place into the pan and cook briefly until the fruit has slightly caramelized.

  • 8.

    Cool the fruit before garnishing the top of each cheesecake. Add a small dollop of Hank’s Orange and Lime Marmalade followed by a sprinkling of the leftover shortbread base and a sprig of mint.

  • 9.

    Refrigerate the cheesecakes for at least an hour before serving.
