This is a lovely combination which came up as I
was running short of lime in the wee morning
on Sunday .
Desserts like this should be made a day in
advance. Anyway, there was no difference in
making couple of hours before lunch .
You can fill an unbaked pie shell or make a
crust with digestive biscuits .
Today I made a crust with biscuits .
So here’s to the recipe
For the crust
200 gm digestive biscuits
2 tbsp butter melted
2 tbsp sugar/ honey
Mix all the ingredients in a food processor .( The biscuits should be crushed fine )
Press on a buttered spring form mould or pie
mould and allow to set in the refrigerator ,till
the filling is made .
For the filling
100 gm butter
1 cup cottage cheese /cream cheese
1 tbsp grated rind of sweet lime
Juice of 1 sweet lime
3/4 cup- 1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cream( room temperature)
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
•Beat butter and sugar till creamy.
•Add cheese,lime juice, rind and beat lightly.
•Add one egg at a time and beat.
•Next fold in rest of the ingredients,and pour
into the prepared crust/ pie.
•Bake in a moderate oven ( 180C ) for 35
It might look jiggly ,but don’t worry it will set in
the fridge after a few hours.
You can serve this dessert warm too.
Serve with cream or by itself .
Topping: Passion fruit concentrate poured over
Any choice of your topping will match this
The top cracked while transferring so don’t
mind the photo .I forgot to take the ‘out of oven’
photo as I was too busy 😊
