A wonderful combination of sweet and tart...and easy to prepare to boot!
For the crust:
1 package of biscoito de Maizena
Or you can buy a prepared Graham Cookie crust...
For the filling:
2 cans of sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350°. In a pie dish (9-inch, round Pyrex is perfect), crumble Maizena cookies well and mix with the butter or margarine to form a crust. (If you want to cheat, buy a prepared Graham Cookie pie crust and bake it according to directions.) Bake crust for 10 minutes. Let cool. Meanwhile, blend together the condensed milk and cream and add lime juice to taste. How much lime juice depends on your taste or tolerance for tartness! Pour into crust and refrigerate for about four hours. Sprinkle with a bit of lime zest before serving. Serves at least six dessert lovers. Ideal for a hot summer day!
