5. 1 egg
6. 1tbsp.vanilla essence

Finally mix in the salt and flour. 11. Pour the mixture on the base evenly (fill the each mini cheesecake till 3/4 of the tin to avoid unevenness, also is you pour till the top it will overflow). 12. Then bake for 25 minutes. 13. While the mini cheesecake bake you can make the filling. 14. In a small mixing bowl add whipping cream and whisk, gradually add sugar. 15. The cream should make stiff peaks. (place in fridge for 10 minutes). 16. Then take the mini cheesecakes out of the pan and leave to cool on a rack (the pan will be hot so leave to cool before you take the mini cheesecakes out). 17. To finish pipe out the cream on top of the mini cheese cake sprinkle the lime zest and almond to finish.
