For the Base:
- 150g digestive biscuits
- 65g butter
- 25g demerara sugar
For the Filling:
- Grated rind of 1 large lime
- Juice of 4 large limes
- 397g can condensed milk
- 450ml double cream
- Start by crushing the digestive biscuits. Place them in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into fine crumbs.
- In a medium-sized pan, melt the butter over low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the biscuit crumbs and demerara sugar until well combined.
- Press the mixture firmly over the base and sides of a 23cm loose-bottomed tin to form the crust. Allow it to set while you prepare the filling.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the lime juice, condensed milk, and 300ml of double cream. Beat the mixture until well blended.
- Pour the filling into the prepared crumb crust, ensuring it is evenly distributed. Gently level the surface with a spatula.
- Chill the pie in the refrigerator for several hours, or until it is set and firm.
- Once the pie is chilled and set, remove it from the tin carefully.
- Whip the remaining double cream until it forms soft peaks. Spread the whipped cream over the top of the pie, creating a smooth layer.
- Finish by scattering grated lime rind over the cream topping, adding a burst of fresh citrus flavor.
- Serve the Key Lime Pie well chilled and enjoy!
