Blueberry Vanilla Jelly Cake

- Melt the butter in a bowl and mix it with the cookie crumble. Make sure you have nice and even texture.
- Take a 8” (20 cm) cake pan with a removable bottom, cover it’s bottom with a piece of baking paper and tap the mixture there so that it will create an even layer.
