Its easy to make a no bake crust with rolled oats, nuts or coconut, dextrose and butter. Melt the butter. Chop other ingredients in food processor. Mix together and spoon into moulds. Put briefly in freezer to firm. Add cocoa for a chocolate version.
Once upon a time making cheesecake never required gelatine. Now it seems that every cheesecake recipe I find has gelatine. I think I might have to try and make this without the gelatine. I might try and combine an old recipe with this one and see what I come up with. Thank you for the inspiration. :)
I’ve read elsewhere that if you place a whole biscuit over each dent in the patty pan and heat for few minutes the biscuits will soften enough to be gently pressed down, without the need for crumbing and butter.
Thanks for the tip Anne, we will try it with The Sugar Breakup biscuits.
