This is one of those cheat desserts using Condensed milk that actually tastes like you’ve spent hours shopping for unusual ingredients and many more whipping, adding, baking, chilling….. it certainly tastes that good. It started out with a digestive biscuits crust, but I’ve changed it to bourbon biscuits – any citrus fruit and chocolate just works! And it needs the bitterness of the limes to cut through the sweet condensed milk to leave a really light, very moorish dessert.
For pie crust:
200g Bourbon Biscuits (blitzed in a blender)
50g melted butter
- Add the bourbon biscuit crumbs to the melted butter then press into a lightly buttered pie dish (preferably with a removable base). I usually dip a pastry brush in some of the melting butter and give the pie dish a quick ‘paint’.
1 tin condensed milk
finely grated rind and juice of 4 limes
- Add the condensed milk to the cream in a large mixing bowl.
- Add the rind & juice of the four limes.
- Whip for about 4/5 minutes. Pour the mixture into the pie dish.
- Decorate and chill for at least 2 hours then serve:
