Jaqcui uses these cases for lots of different fillings :o)
1 packet of gingernut biscuits 
Your choice of fillings:
custard and fresh/tinned berries
cream and strawberries
chocolate or caramel mousse
set jelly
vanilla ice cream

Sit a gingernut, bottom side up, in each of the hollows of a muffin tray.  Place the tray in a warm oven (about 100 degrees Celsius) for 3 to 5 minutes or until the gingernuts have softened enough for you to push them into the hollow with the base of a soup spoon.
Leave them to cool and harden again, in the muffin tin.
Fill the gingernut cases with your favourite filling.

Depending on your preference you may wish to fill the cases just prior to eating so the cases are still crunchy or you might want to fill them earlier so the cases absorb some of the moisture from the filling and soften a little.
