Lime pie


For this recipe I bought a lovely new flan/pie dish especially, how extravagant! I fancied something fresh and found a really simple recipe on the Tesco food app of all places. I amended the recipe slightly, here is how I made it:

  • Crush 250g of digestives, then melt 125 g of butter and mix with the crushed biscuits.
  • Next press the mixture into your flan dish and bake for ten mins at 160 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, make the filling: whisk three egg yolks with the zest of two limes until it is thickened and pale.
  • Add a 400g tin of condensed milk and whisk for a bit longer.
  • Finally whisk in the juice of two limes.
  • Pour the filling into the baked crust.
  • Return it to the oven for fifteen to twenty minutes, until just set.
  • Allow it to cool in its dish, then put in the fridge to chill until you are ready to eat it.
