Biscuit base

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Morning
Has anybody made a biscuit crumb base using Hobnobs. I've managed to eat most of the digestives!

Not a problem! You can use pretty well any biscuit. Chocolate covered, ginger, chocolate, HobNobs, etc

Thanks, Welsh Cookie.
Now I must make the B/base before I eat the Hobnobs.

Pauline, if only I had seen this before, I would have told you to go ahead and eat the Hobnobs and make your own base! I cannot get digestives, hobnobs or the like here in the US, so always make a cheesecake base by creaming 4oz butter with 3oz sugar. Add half teaspoon vanilla extract. Finally add 5oz plain flour to make a dough and then press into cheesecake pan. Easy, though I don't get to eat the hobnobs!

Your bases would have the added bonus of no unnecessary additives, Janice. Truly home-made!

Digestive biscuits.

I also live in the U.S. and can get McVities digestive and Hobnobs at a local Cost Plus World Market. The Digestives are also available at my local Walmarts at a very reasonable price. I buy them for the bakery for my Banoffee Pie and cheesecake bases.

Well, I suppose it was a bit of best of both worlds, although one wasn't quite as good as the other. I used the hobnobs for a base to cheats lemon meringue pie using lemon curd. I made four little ones which turned out a bit squidgy and very sweet--but we ate them. The rest of the hobnobs were delicious with tea and coffee. The rest of the curd has been used in a sponge. I don't think I will make the pies like this again but will definitely eat hobnobs!

Lucky you Britbabe. I will look in Walmart but I don't know of a world market near me. Kroger stopped selling British items, but I do have a recipe for digestives that I want to try. Don't know if they would taste as good as McVities though.
