No Bake Lime Pie

Partly eaten lime pie!
This unusual combination of ingredients is for the sweet tooth, though the sweetness is diminished by the addition of lime juice and zest.

Lime (or lemons) are such a great combination, and this is unusual in that it has salty cracker biscuits as well - so you have sweet, bitter and salty.  I used Jatz biscuits but any slightly salty cracker would be fine.

You can either serve them in individual dishes or, as I have done, in one pie dish.  Either way, it tastes very yummy!

This is a great dessert to serve up when you have visitors, as it never fails to impress them.  It is also quite easy to make and requires no cooking, and only one dish to wash up.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes (plus overnight)
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes: 5 servings

395 g tin sweetened condensed milk
275 g cream
¼ cup lime juice
¾ tbsp lime zest
About 150 g Ritz crackers

Combine the milk and cream in a large bowl.

Add the lime juice, and whisk it until it has thickened. This will take about 2 minutes.

Spread about ½ a cup of the filling on the bottom of a deep dish, pie plate, or oval casserole (about 30 cm).

Top this with a single layer of Ritz crackers.

Repeat this, alternating layers of filling and crackers until the pie plate is full, and finishing with a layer of the filling.

Spread it as evenly as possible, so that the filling covers the biscuits, and then sprinkle it with grated lime zest.

Refrigerate this for at least 2 hours, though preferably overnight.

Serve - you COULD add some more whipped cream if you really want a decadent dessert!
