    To make the base, place the biscuits in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin to make fine crumbs. Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the biscuits.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 300g Digestive biscuits
    • 75g Butter (unsalted)
  2. 2

    Press the mixture into a 20cm loose bottomed, greased flan tin and up the sides, pressing well with the back of a spoon.  Leave the base to chill in the fridge.

    Using a zester, pare the rind from 1 lime into strips and set aside for the decoration. Grate the remaining lime zest and squeeze all the juice. Place the juice in a mixing bowl with the condensed milk and cream and whisk until thickened. Stir in the grated lime zest then spread the mixture into the biscuit base. Chill for at least 1 hour.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 5 Lime zest finely grated
    • 5 Lime juice
    • 400g Condensed milk
    • 300ml Double cream

    Decorate with the remaining lime zest and the chocolate curls.  This pie will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge or can be frozen.

    • 3 tbsp Chocolate curls
