Ingredients

  • 400g gingernut biscuits
  • 120g unsalted butter

You’ll also need

  • 20cm deep loose-bottomed cake tin

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 170°C/150°C fan/ gas 3½. In a food processor, whizz the biscuits to fine crumbs. Melt the butter, then mix into the biscuits with a wooden spoon.
  2. Press the biscuit mixture into the bottom and three-quarters of the way up the inside of a 20cm deep loose-bottomed tin to create a pie shell. Chill (see Make Ahead).
  3. In a large bowl, use a balloon whisk to mix the egg yolks with the condensed milk, lime zest and juice until smooth. Stir in the blueberries. Pour into the chilled pie shell (it should come to just below the rim).
  4. Put the tin on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes until the filling has set with a slight wobble. Cool, then chill for 2 hours or until ready to serve (see Make Ahead).

delicious. tips

  1. Lightly whisk the egg whites and keep in a freezer bag. Mark with the date and number of eggs and freeze for up to 3 months.

    This pie is made in the style of an American key lime pie, but we’ve used regular, easy-to-find limes.

  2. Make up to 24 hours in advance, then chill, covered. Make the base up to 48 hours before baking with the filling.
