Did you hear about the gang who stole £20,000 worth of Jammie Dodgers? No, this isn’t the opening of some joke, this is something that actually happened in South Wales a couple of years ago. Basically a gang from Liverpool travelled down to the Burton’s Food Factory in Torfaen and stole a trailer containing £20,000 worth of biscuits. The not so artful dodgers (…see what I did there?) were eventually caught and the trailer found. But the biscuits? Scoffed – I’m assuming – because they were never found. Perhaps the funniest part of this story though is the fact that one of the thieves – whilst being led from the dock to start his eighteen month jail sentence – chirped up and said, “Anyone want a biscuit?”
Anyway. It was my Mum’s birthday last week, which we celebrated quietly with a takeaway curry from our local and a game of Cards Against Humanity. I adapted my old Mallow Cake recipe and made this Jammie Dodger Cheesecake using digestive biscuits for the base, and plenty of jam, whipped cream and Jammie Dodgers for the topping.
I have to say I’ve never been a huge fan of Jammie Dodgers (I’m more of a Hob Nob/Custard Cream kinda girl), but they worked really well in a cheesecake! Yum! 🙂
Happy Birthday, Mum! ♡
