  • Blitz biscuits in food processor until you have small crumbs, melt butter and mix the two together, put into the bottom of tin and press down with the back of a spoon to form base,
  • put into the fridge to chill while you get on with the topping.
  • Whip cream until peaks form, but not too stiff, fold in the condensed milk, then add the lemon zest and juice, mixture will thicken because of the lemon but that's ok,
  • add to the chilled biscuit base and chill for around 3-4 hours.
  • Take out of the fridge 15 minutes before serving, enjoy!
