What to use instead of lattice biscuits in recipes?

If lattice biscuits aren’t available, you can use Sao Crackers. While they aren’t sweetened, chance are the recipe filling or topping is already sweet and the slight saltiness will balance nicely. Our Test Kitchen sleuths also suggest the square sugar crackers which are available from some larger Asian supermarkets.



1.Line a 30 x 20cm (base measurement) slice pan with baking paper, extending paper at long sides for handles.
2.Sprinkle gelatine over boiling water in a small heatproof jug. Stir until gelatine dissolves; cool slightly.
3.Place half the biscuits, sugar-side down, evenly over base of prepared pan; trim to fit.
4.Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter in a bowl until light and creamy. Add sugar, essence and cooled gelatine; beat until combined. Fold in strawberries and food colouring until just combined.
5.Spread strawberry mixture evenly over biscuits. Top with remaining biscuits, sugar-side up; chill 3 hours or until set. Cut into squares and dust with icing sugar. Serve with extra strawberries.

Use any type of plain un-iced biscuits.
