Serves 6

40g (1½ oz) butter, melted
6 digestive biscuits, crushed into crumbs
Grated zest and juice of ½ lemon
250g tub mascarpone cheese
100g (3 ½ oz) full fat soft cheese
50g (2oz) golden caster sugar
2 medium eggs
1 egg yolk
75ml (3fl oz) double cream
Few drops vanilla essence
6 tablespoons Bonne Maman Three Fruit Marmalade
2 tablespoons orange-flavoured liqueur
450g (1lb) fresh raspberries

1. Preheat the oven to 140C (fan oven 120), gas 1. Stir the melted butter into the biscuit crumbs and stir until evenly combined. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the crumbs and divide the remainder between 6 clean Bonne Maman jars and press down lightly over the base with the end of a rolling pin. Pop in the freezer for 5 minutes to harden.

2. Put the lemon zest, cheeses, sugar and eggs in a bowl and beat until smooth. Beat in the lemon juice and finally, gradually beat in the double cream and vanilla.

3. In a small saucepan, warm the marmalade with the liqueur until melted and smooth. Using a large metal spoon or rubber spatula, stir the marmalade into the raspberries, taking care not to crush the fruit.

4. Set aside about 30 raspberries for decoration and divide the remainder between the jars, pressing down slightly onto the biscuit base. Finally spoon the cheesecake mixture over the raspberries.

5. Place the jars in a roasting tin with enough hot water to come about 2.5cm (1inch) up the sides of the jars. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until very lightly set. Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecakes in there until cold. Cover with the lids and keep in the fridge until required.

6. When ready to use, scatter the reserved raspberries on top of the baked cheesecakes and spoon over the extra biscuit crumbs. Serve at room temperature.
