You can do this one with any citrus fruit really but key lime is such a classic!


Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 300g sweet biscuits
  • 150g Butter, Melted
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 4 zest of limes
  • 300ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • extra lime zest, to decorate.

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Whizz the biscuits to crumbs in a food processor (or put in a strong plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin). Mix with the melted butter and press into the base and up the sides of a 22cm loose-based tart tin. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove and cool.
  2. Put the egg yolks in a large bowl and whisk for a minute with electric beaters. Add the condensed milk and whisk for 3 minutes then add the zest and juice and whisk again for 3 minutes. Pour the filling into the cooled base then put back in the oven for 15 minutes. Cool then chill for at least 3 hours or overnight if you like.
  3. When you are ready to serve, carefully remove the pie from the tin and put on a serving plate. To decorate, softly whip together the cream and icing sugar. Dollop or pipe the cream onto the top of the pie and finish with extra lime zest.
