Classic Key Lime Pie.

IMG_3524

This is one of my all time favourite desserts!

Always a winner with guests and crew.

I just use random biscuit crust that I have around, ginger biscuits work well or just plain Marie biscuits, graham crackers.  A 250grm packet, mixed with enough melted butter to combine the mix.

Place into a greased 8 inch flan tin or your springform tin lined with baking paper.

Push the crumbs up the side of the tin and place in the fridge to chill while you make the filling.

For the Filling your going to need:

1 can (14oz) of condensed milk

3 egg yolks

1/2 cup lime juice

1 tbsp lime zest

whisk all together until thick and combined.

Pour into the chilled base and then bake for 10 mins in the oven at 160’c until it doest jiggle too much in the middle.

Let the pie cool, then place in the fridge to chill overnight if you can last that long.

You can top with whipped cream if you wish or leave plain and decorate with fruit as have done above.

 

I know the recipe is called Key Lime but they are hard limes to find unless your in the USA so the regular limes work just as well.

Enjoy, just one piece won’t ever be enough!

Let me know if I can help with anything at all.

Love cupcake xx
