A few days ago I’ve made Afternoon tea at home, you can read more about it on my lifestyle blog. I made 3 sandwiches. For dessert I’ve obviously made scones, ones with raisins and others with chocolate chips. For patisserie I made chestnut mousse, but without the apple, chocolate cupcakes with strawberries, lime pie and matcha pie.
I made the pies with a baked pie dough as I’m not too keen on the biscuits&butter base. You can make them with the base you like best.
For 2 small pies:
– 80g white plain flour
– 40g butter at room temperature
– 200ml light condensed milk
– 2 free range egg yolks
– lime from 2 medium limes
Make the dough by mixing the flour with the soften butter. Try not to handle the dough a lot as it gets harder to work with. Knead the dough very quickly on the worktop. Let the dough rest in the fridge for 15-20 minutes if it’s too soft.
Preheat the oven to 150C or 130C fan.
Roll the dough and put it in the baking trays. Make the filling by mixing the condensed milk with the egg yolks. After the yolks are incorporated, add the lime juice and mix thoroughly. Pour the mixture and bake it for 25 to 30 minutes. Check if the filling is set and take it out of the oven. Leave it to cool for a few minutes, then take it out of the baking tray.
Do you like lime pie?
