Lime Layer:


      Ingredients:

  • Unsalted Butter ( room temp) –  4 tbsp
  • Lime juice – 1/3 cup
  • Lime zest – 1 tbsp
  • Sugar – ¾ cupLemon Dessert with Vanilla Ice cream
  • Eggs – 3


    Method:

  • In a stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of boiling water, whisk together the eggs, sugar, and lemon juice until blended. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture becomes thick like a custard. This will take approximately 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Add the lime zest and the butter and whisk into the mixture until the butter has melted. The mixture will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Cover with a cellophane immediately (so a skin doesn’t form) and refrigerate.

Finally!!!!

  • Over the biscuit layer, add a layer of Vanilla Ice cream, creating a small dent in the center.
  • Pour the chilled lime pudding in the center.
  • Freeze until ready to eat. 

Tips:

  • Be careful not to curdle the lime curd by stirring continuously.
  • You can use a lime favoured custard if you want to save time. But do try this out, it’s worth it.
  • Ensure that you cover the lime curd with a cellophane, so that the skin layer does not form
