Lime pie? Difficult ? I think not.


I’m not great when it comes to cakes and pastries.. but if I could do it, then so can you. It’s dead simple, let’s get started!

The pie serves 12 people, I made it in a 27cm diameter tin.

What you’ll need is:

600g graham crackers

120 g of butter

6 limes

8 eggs

2 cans of sweetened condensed milk

200ml of thickened cream

bash the cookies until they’re very fine crumbs. Add the melted butter and mix until they look like wet sand. Line the tin with them, making sure the mixture goes all the way up the sides too. Let it set in the fridge while you prepare the filling.

Zest 4 limes and juice all of them afterwards. Whisk the eggs while adding the sweetened condensed milk, cream and lime juice/zest. Mix altogether, pour onto the cookie base. Bake in a preheated oven for about 55-60 min in 175C. how easy was that? 😉

important: let the pie cool completely and then put it into the fridge for the night until it sets properly. then cut it. 🙂
