When I saw the recipe for 10-Minute Lime Cracker Pie posted on Serious Eats, I decided it would be the perfect thing to serve on the Fourth of July. And I was right. A big ol' slab of lime-flavored heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk was just thing to have after indulging in hamburgers and bratwurst. <g> Ok, not really. But a couple of tablespoons of the tangy stuff hit the spot.
I think an orange or lemon version with chocolate cookies might be fun to try.
10-Minute Lime Cracker Pie (from Serious Eats)
2 (14-ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 pint heavy cream
1/2 cup lime juice (about 4-5 limes)
10 ounces (about 2 1/2 sleeves) Ritz crackers
zest from 2 limes
Combine milk and heavy cream in a large bowl. Add lime juice and whisk until thickened, about 1 minute. Spread 1 cup filling on bottom of 8" square baking pan. Top with single layer of Ritz crackers. Repeat, alternating layers of filling and crackers until pie plate is full (finish with a layer of filling). Sprinkle with grated lime zest. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Serves 8-10.
