  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Gradually add the evaporated milk and lemon juice and to beat until fluffy. Scrape the bottom of the bowl occasionally to make sure there are no lumps. Gradually beat in the amaretto, vanilla and the gelatine mixture until everything is well blended.

  4. In a medium bowl, whip the double cream until stiff but not grainy, then fold it into the cream cheese mixture. Spoon the filling over the chilled digestive base and refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving. Do not remove the springform ring until serving time.
