Can any one give me anything on curd cheese]

It did seem very expensive though
I have a little old lady friend who is desperate for me to get her some so she can make curd tarts as her mother used to make. I think she would not want to pay so much for it.
East End Cheesecake
1 lb curd cheese
3 oz caster sugar (or a little more to taste)
3 medium eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBS lemon juice
Optional; some sultanas (soak in a little lemon juice half & half with water)
Half a small pack digestives, crumbed (edited to add - about 125 g)
3 oz butter, melted
Optional: a couple of TBS chopped nuts and/or some cinnamon or other spice)
Melt butter, add other base ingredients, and press into the base of a springform pan, about 8 inches (23/24) cm in diameter
Mix all filling ingredients well. Pour into tin
Bake one hour at gas mark 3. When just about set but still a little wobbly turn off the heat and leave in the oven at least another hour.
Can top with a thickened fruit compote if liked
