Key Lime Pie (gluten free version!)

Made this gluten free key lime pie for dinner at Joe's brother and girlfriend's house! It was a great evening, plenty of wine, chat and good food :) What more could you want!

Crumb crust : 175g gluten free digestive biscuits(i used GF choc chip cookies), 2tbsp caster sugar, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 70g melted butter

Filling: 400ml can condensed milk, 125ml fresh squeezed lime juice, finely grated rind 3 limes, 4 egg yolks

Serve topped with whipped cream and a lime garnish! mmmmm...........

Preheat the oven to 160C and grease a 9inch tart tin
For the base, put the biscuits sugar and cinnamon in a food processor and whiz until its fine crumbs (not powder)! Add the melted butter and process until moist. Tip the mixture into the prepped tin and press over the base and up the side. Bake for 5 mins.
Meanwhile, beat the condensed milk, lime juice and rind and egg yolks on med to high speed until well beaten. Remove the tart tin from the oven, pour the filling on and smooth out to the edges. Bake for another 15 mins until set but still a bit wobbly in the middle.
Cool completely on a wire rack, cover and chill for 2 hours. Spread with thick whipped cream about a cm from the edges. Tuck in!!!
