lime

Ingredients:

(Serves 12) make 1 1/5 size

For the pie crust:

3dl plain flour

2 tbsp. Caster sugar

125g butter

1 egg yolk

 

Lemon Cream Filling:

3 eggs

2 dl caster sugar

2dl whipping cream

2 tbsp. plain flour

1 tsp. vanilla sugar

Grated zest and juice out of 1 lime and 1 lemon

 

Decoration and serving:

1 sliced lime

1 tbsp. icing sugar

3 dl whipping cream

 

Preparation Method:

  1. Chop together flour, sugar and butter into a granular dough. Add the egg yolks and work together into smooth dough.
  2. Press it out with your fingers into a buttered and floured pie form (about 24cm in diameter) with removable edges. Press long into the edges so that it gives a pretty effect after the filling has been put in so that it is sticking unevenly out above the filling. Let it rest in the fridge for about 30mins.
  3. Pre heat the oven to 200°C.
  4. In the meantime prepare the filling.
  5. Whip the eggs and sugar until smooth and white. Add the rest of the ingredients. Pour into the cooled pie form. Bake it at the bottom of the oven for about 30 minutes until the filling is nice firm to touch and edges have gotten nice color.
  6. Let it cool down. Decorate with lime slices and sprinkle over the icing sugar.

 

Serve with whipped cream.
