Basic All Purpose Biscuit Base

Makes enough base for one 23cm round base Rated:

OK, so this is not your average recipe...and it even a recipe? But I thought it worth including on this site as I often get asked how to do it, or with what quantities. So here you are lovelies...the easiest biscuit base around. It can be simply chilled and used for an unbaked cheesecake or tart or it can be baked for a baked version.

Knock yourself out. Delish. Easy. Oh and if you are using a non sandwich biscuit, you will need more butter to help the crumbs stick together, about double the amount stated. Have fun!
