RECIPE Gluten Free Key Lime Pie


This pie was so yummy, we scoffed quite a bit before I remembered to take any photos as you can see!
I've made this twice now and it's just the best.

Pointer - use an electric whisk for the whisking part as it can take quite a while to get the right thickness of the cream by hand *smirk*

Ingredients

1 pack of Tesco Gluten Free Shortbread http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/tesco-price-comparison/Biscuits/Tesco_Free_From_Shortbread_200g.html (or similar 200g of GF biscuits), crushed
40g unsalted butter
35g Margarine Light
Grated zest and juice of 4 limes
1/2 pint double cream (a small Elmlea is a slightly healthier alternative)
1 small can condensed milk
3 tablespoons of caster sugar

Method
1. Melt the butter in a small pan and stir in the crushed biscuits. Lightly press into the base of a loosed-bottomed fluted flan tin.
2. Chill whilst preparing the filling.
3. To prepare the filling: place the lime juice into a large bowl, add the cream, sugar and condensed milk.
4. Whisk until the mixture can form soft peaks. Add the lime zest and lightly stir.
5. Pour into the prepared biscuit base.
6. Decorate with grated lime zest or crystallized lime pieces
7. Place onto a tray and chill for 1-2 hours.

  1. I thought I'd post here as I am still not sure how the blogger comment function works. there are a few good studios down in Bournemouth (including friends & family) but I've taken a long time looking through magazines & talking to people trying to find artists I really admire, & after being not overly fond of my last tattoo I don't want to go to someone who I think is just OK.

    there are a couple of shops in Brighton I like the look of but it's easier for me just to get a train to London (plus there's not the aggro of whether the train will arrive in Southampton in time for the connecting service).
