American Pie with Brazilian Lime (26 April 2014)

Today I really do not have much time for baking but I promised my son that I will suprise him when he is back from school. I decided to make super simple pie!

Who does not like simple recipe with few things to buy, short time of preparation and simply deliciouse! I really do and as you have seen before I try to bake simple cakes, maybe becauce I do not have enough patience. On my shopping list I only put five things to buy: oreo biscuits, butter, condensed milk, four eggs and limes. Can it be so simple, try and tell me how do you like it.

Lime pie recipe comes from Emelie Holm's book “Small cake”. I promise you that once you taste it you will do it over and over again.

6-8 portions

1 package oreo biscuits
50 g butter
1 can of condensed milk (400g)
4 egg yolks
juice from 3 limes

Crush the oreeo biscuits and melt butter in a pan. Mix well crushed biscuits with melted butter. Place the butter- crumb mixer on the bottom of a pie dish with removable rim, about 25 cm i diameter. Using your hands, press the butter-crumb mixer down evenly and firmly. Set in 200 °C oven and bake for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool. Lower the oven to 150 °C.

Pour condensed milk in a bowl. Stir in the egg yolks, one at a time and mix well between each egg yolks. Stir in lime juice. Finally, pour the whole lot on to the baked crust and return it to the oven for another 15-20 minutes.
Enjoy it!
