Biscuit Layers

200g butter, softened

1¼ cups caster sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

Filling

3 tsp powdered gelatine

¼ cup cold water

375g cream cheese

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup caster sugar

1 cup pouring cream

375g blackberries

Preheat oven to 180°C. To make biscuit layers, place butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer; beat for 8-10 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well combined. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Add dry mixture to butter mixture; beat until just combined. Divide mixture between two greased and lined 20 x 30cm slice tins; spread evenly. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Let cool completely in tins.

Meanwhile, sprinkle gelatine over cold water; set aside for 5 minutes to absorb. Place cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer; beat for 2-3 minutes. Add cream; beat until just combined. Place gelatine in a saucepan over low heat; stir until it melts. Fold into cream-cheese mixture and pour over one of the biscuit bases. Arrange blackberries over cheesecake mixture; top with remaining biscuit layer. Place a baking tray on top; weigh it down with some food tins. Refrigerate overnight. Trim sides and cut into bars to serve.
