1. Melt the butter gently in a pan.

2. Crush the ginger biscuits (don’t use your rolling pin, it’ll put dints in it, a tin of beans is a much better idea) and add to the pan, stirring until all crumbs are coated. You can use oatmeal biscuits if you don’t like ginger, or a combination for more texture.

3. Press into a presentation dish and pop in the fridge to cool.

4. Put the lemon zest and juice into a bowl with the condensed milk and cream and whisk gently. The mixture will thicken as you mix it – stop once this happens and spoon it all onto the base.

5. Decorate with strands of lemon. Redcurrants also look nice, but for this recipe, less is more! Chill for a couple of hours to intensify the flavour of the lemon.
