The Leftovers Handbook by Suzy Bowler is out now priced £12.99. Published by How To Books Ltd, this book is an A-Z of over 450 possible leftover ingredients and provides smart, interesting, quirky, and delicious ways of using them up. It's for all those who love food but hate waste.
In the 'biscuits' section of the Leftovers Handbook, author Suzy Bowler writes:
Cheesecake base This is generally made with crushed digestives, but any not too exciting biscuit will work. Crush 125g broken or leftover biscuits to crumbs, sweeten according to the biscuit and mix with 90g melted butter. Press onto the base of your cheesecake container. This same mixture can also be layered up with mousse in pretty glasses.
Desserts Sprinkle broken biscuits over yoghurt and creamy desserts, ice cream in general and Affogato in particular.
Ice cream Stir into ice cream.
