2 tsp cornstarch        

Method  
- Mix the crushed biscuits and butter together and put into a 20cm springform baking tin and chill in the fridge for an hour  
- Beat together the soft cream cheese; then beat in the icing sugar and vanilla extract and finally thoroughly beat in the double cream  
- Layer the mixture on top of the biscuit base from the outwards inwards so that it is spread evenly  - Put in the fridge over night 
 - Add fruit topping and return the cheesecake to the fridge while you make the lime sauce  
-  Mix the cornstarch and water in a bowl until the mixture is smooth  
- Heat the lime juice and sugar on a medium heat, then add in the cornstarch mixture
