Place the biscuit-lined baking tin onto a baking tray before pouring the cheesecake mixture in. Bake for 45 minutes before switching off the oven and leaving the door just ajar so the cheesecake will cool slowly. When the oven is at room temperature then transfer the cheesecake to the fridge.

Put the blueberries, brown sugar and juice from the lemon in a pan. Bring to a simmer for 1 minute then leave to cool.
