    Looks yummy xxx?

  2. Just made it this morning Dawn, I cannot tell you how easy it is to make. I must admit though I did change just adding the crushed ginger biscuits, I added 125g melted butter into the crushed biscuits and pressed the mixture into the bottom of the tin. Mainly because I couldn’t work out how dry biscuits wouldn’t fall to pieces when the cheesecake was served.
    It’s delicious too…
