    2 hours 20 minutes

    A no-cook tart made with simple ingredients. You can make it quickly but it does need a couple of hours to chill before serving. You can use lemons instead of limes.

    20 people made this

    Serves: 10 

    • 1 pack of plain sweet biscuits, like Marie
    • 30g butter
    • 3 limes
    • 2 tins (each 395g) of condensed milk

    Preparation:20min  ›  Extra time:2hours chilling  ›  Ready in:2hours20min 

    1. Put the biscuits in a strong plastic bag then put bag on chopping board and gently roll and tap with a rolling pin until biscuits are broken into small crumbs.
    2. Heat the butter in a saucepan till melted.
    3. Place biscuits in saucepan and mix evenly with wooden spatula until everything is mixed evenly.
    4. Place mixture into a 20cm cake tin or tart tin pressing down firmly. Place into fridge for 30 minutes.
    5. Meanwhile, cut the limes in half and juice. Empty the tins of condensed milk into mixing bowl. Add lime juice and mix until firm.
    6. Pour on top of base. Chill for approximately 2 hours.

    Cook's tip

    A handy tip i use for any biscuit base dessert/tart; is to put 1 layer of biscuits in the tin then put another layer on top of them. This then gives you a fairly accurate measure of how many biscuits to crush.

    Made this for dessert after a 'Mexican themed' dinner party. Everyone loved it, very simple recipe with a real zing! Next time will add a little colour, I added some lime zest on top to give it some colour this time.  -  12 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
