Mix together the crushed biscuits, melted butter and sugar. Press into the bottom of a 23cm tin.
Place the cheese into a mixing bowl together with the caster sugar, vanilla essence, eggs and lemon juice. Mix until creamy and smooth. Pour the filling over the biscuit base and bake in a preheated oven at gas mark 4 for approximately 30 minutes. Leave to cool and transfer to the fridge to chill.
