Lime Pie

This is my very first attempt at a lime pie. I thought it was delicious. Sweet and tart at the same time, it is the perfect palate cleanser after a great meal. Very light with the fragrant scent of lime zest , I fell in love with this very simple dessert which took me less than 30 mins to make.


2 Cups graham fine cookie crumbs (Grind cookies in a mixer or in a bag with a rolling pin)
2 tbs brown sugar
4 tbs melted butter
1/2 cup of lime juice
1 tbs of lime zest
1 can condensed milk
4 egg yolks
Whipped cream (optional for decoration)


Mix cookie crumbs with brown sugar and butter
Press in a 9 inch tart tray and bake in the over at 375 F for 10-15 mins
Remove from oven and set aside
Reduce oven heat to 325 F
Beat condensed milk with egg yolks thoroughly
Add lime juice and lime zest beat until well mixed
Pour onto pressed cookie base
Bake for 20 -25 mins
Allow to cool and refrigerate
Decorate and serve with whipped cream and lime zest
