I loved this! However I wouldn't bother with the "marbling" attempt next time- the mixture was too runny to do this and it ended up all blending together. My base went a little soggy but I used "ginger crumble" type biscuits instead of the recommended ginger nuts which are less crunchy so probably caused the problem. Overall very nice and very popular with the family- a lovely lighter alternative to pumkin pie. - 11 Dec 2009
I've used this recipe a few times and it's a hit with my family. The only thing I do differently is use half and half ginger snaps and dark chocolate digestives. The marbling usually works too! - 05 Sep 2014
tastes ok, but mine came out a bit blunt, perhaps I should have added a bit more spices - 07 Jul 2012
