    very disappointed. Buying a packet of biscuits isn't cooking. I avoid all processed stuff, particularly biscuits because they mostly contain palm oil and more refined sugar and salt that I choose to have in my diet. I was looking for a recipe for a biscuit base in order to make cheese cakes. "Buy a packet of biscuits and crush them" isn't cooking.  -  07 May 2017

    I was pretty stupid with this one: When I read "16 graham crackers" I thought the WHOLE cracker (with the 4 separations in it) was 1 cracker, when it was actually 4!!! So I ended up using 64 crackers (4X the number needed), which of course resulted in there not being enough butter to moisten them. After I realized this, I removed 1/2 the crackers and added another 1/4 cup of butter, and it turned out fine even though the proportions were off! Make sure you know that 1 cracker is 1/4 of a "sheet" as it comes in the package!  -  13 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
