This is a rich and scrumptious pie.  This pie is best made the day before to allow for easier cutting.

Ingredients

  • 370g ginger nut biscuits
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted and then cooled
  • 175g honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
  • 600ml pouring cream
  • 110g crystallised ginger, chopped
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3 teaspoons cornflour
  • 55g caster sugar

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160C.
  • Pulse biscuits in a food processor to crumbs.  Add the butter and pulse again to combine.
  • Press the crumb mixture into the base and the side of a 24cm loose-based fluted tart tin.  Freeze for 1 hour.

  • Whisk the egg yolks with the cornflour in a heatproof bowl until pale.
  • Return the cream mixture to a simmer, then pour over the egg yolks and stir to combine.  Transfer to a clean saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for 6 minutes or until thickened.
