550g (1lb 2oz) condensed milk

1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.

2 Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to fine crumbs. Remove 2 tbsp of the crumbs and set aside. Add the melted butter to the crumbs in the food processor and blitz for a few seconds more until combined.

3 Transfer the buttery biscuit mixture to the prepared tin, then use the back of a spoon to press it down firmly and evenly all the way to the edges of the tin to give an even base.

4 Place the egg yolks in a medium bowl. Using a balloon whisk, whisk in the condensed milk until fully incorporated. Then, slowly whisk in the lemon juice until combined. Pour the mixture on top of the biscuit base.
