Momma Cherri: A sweet and zesty American treat served with cream.

For 6 – 8 people

250g ginger nut biscuits
125g butter, melted
400ml can of sweetened condensed milk
2 Eggs
125ml freshly squeezed lime juice (about 6-10 Limes)
Juice of 1 Lemon
Grated zest of 2 limes
ice cream or whipped cream, to serve
slices of lime, to garnish

1. Crush the biscuits by putting them in a plastic bag and pounding them with a rolling pin until powdery.
2. Transfer them into a bowl and add the melted butter.
3. Stir well, then place in the base of a 23cm pie tin and pat into place.
4. Put the condensed milk and eggs in a bowl and stir with a fork, gradually adding the lime and lemon juice. The mixture will begin to thicken.
5. Add half the lime zest and pour the mixture on top of the ginger crust.
6. Sprinkle the remaining zest on top.
7. Place in an oven, preheated to 180°C/Gas Mark 4 and cook for 10 minutes only.
8. Don’t be fooled by the look of the pie into thinking you need to cook it for longer. It is meant to be custard-like.
9. It is not a baked cheesecake, although it does look and taste a bit like one.
10. Once cooled, place in the fridge where it will continue to set.
11. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
