    I’ve never heard of “digestive biscuits” before. Must be what the USA calls “graham crackers”?

    My husband threw out the bottom of my spring for pan about 14 years ago and I have never bothered to buy another one. LOL

    The recipe looks delicious!

      Add butter in your biscuit base, it will help to settle it down. You can increase the quantity of butter. You must refrigerate the base for atleast 1-2 hours.
