  2. Preheat the oven at 180 degree C for 10 minutes.


3.Transfer the powdered biscuits into a  6 inch pie dish or tart pan with removable base. Press the powdered biscuits firmly with your hand and spread evenly,cover the sides of the pan too.
4.Place on a baking tray and put it into the hot oven and bake for 10 minutes (till the biscuit base looks little brown).Let this base cool completely.


5.Once the biscuit base is cooled, spread the dulce de leche on the base . Dip a spoon into hot water and using the back of the spoon spread the dulce (this makes it easier to spread the dulce).
