Method

  • 01
  • Process biscuits in a food processor to fine crumbs, add butter and pulse until combined. Spoon mixture into a 25cm springform cake pan and press evenly over the base. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

  • Whisk egg yolks in an electric mixer for 5 minutes or until pale and fluffy. Combine sugar and verjuice in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and stir to dissolve, then bring to the boil and cook until syrup reaches 120C on a sugar thermometer. With motor running on high speed, add sugar syrup to egg yolks in a thin stream. Return saucepan to heat, squeeze excess water from gelatine and add to pan, stir until just melted then add to egg yolks and whisk until cold.
