The best solver gets a biscuit (5,7)


I believe the answer is:

cream cracker

'a biscuit' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'the best solver' is the wordplay.
'the best' becomes 'cream' (as in 'the cream of the crop').
'solver' becomes 'cracker' (someone who cracks things).
'cream'+'cracker'='CREAM CRACKER'

'gets' acts as a link.

(Another definition for cream cracker that I've seen is " Biscuit".)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
