Bit of a stupid question

Hi everyone,

I know this might be me being a bit think, but when recipes on the SW site give you a syn value is that per serving or for the whole recipe? I'm asuming it's per serving?

[/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]INGREDIENTS[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][SIZE=-2]
113g / 4oz Ginger Nut biscuits
1 egg white, beaten
4-5 tablespoons hot water
1 sachet powdered gelatine
454g / 1lb Quark soft cheese
grated zest and juice of 2 lemons
2 pieces stem ginger, finely chopped

1. Put the biscuits in a clean plastic bag and close the end securely. Crush with a rolling pin and then mix with the beaten egg white. Grease and line a 20cm / 8inch spring clip cake tin and line the base with the crushed biscuit mixture, pressing it down evenly. Bake in a preheated oven at 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5 for 10 minutes. Leave to cool.
2. Put the very hot (not boiling) water in a bowl and sprinkle on the gelatine. Stir for about 5 minutes until dissolved, and then set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
3. Beat together the Quark, lemon and juice and stem ginger. Sweeten to taste and then stir in the gelatine with a metal spoon.
4. Pour the cheesecake mixture into the tin over the biscuit base. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours until set. Just before serving, scatter some slivers of lemon zest over the top and decorate with physallis, if wished.
