Sweet and zesty, our take on the classic Key Lime Pie recipe is entirely gluten-free and includes a ginger biscuit base that’s sure to delight! Whatever the weather this easy no-bake dessert is always a winner.
First, take the stem ginger biscuits and crush them in a small plastic bag with a rolling pin until they look like fine breadcrumbs.
Melt the butter and mix this into the crushed biscuits, making sure each crumb is coated.
Turn the mixture into a baking tin, pressing it down with the back of a teaspoon to ensure the base is evenly spread, and leave in the fridge to set for an hour.
To make the delicious filling gently mix the cream and condensed milk together in a bowl. Slice the limes in half and juice them with either a manual or electric juicer (or squeeze them by hand if you’re feeling ambitious!). Grate the top of the limes for the zest and add both the juice and zest to the bowl, mixing it all together.
Add the filling to the base, again using the back of a spoon to evenly spread the mixture and put back into the fridge to chill.
Decorate the pie with extra lime slices and zest, you could even sprinkle some nuts on top if you’d like, it’s entirely up to you!
Lastly, admire your glorious looking Key Lime Pie, serve up and enjoy the refreshingly indulgent dessert with friends, family or just by yourself (we promise we won’t judge). Keep your eyes peeled for more recipes, perfect for the warmer weather, coming soon!
