Equipment

  • Food processor
  • 20cm tart or cake tin
  • Large bowl

Ingredients

  • 400 g biscuits, ginger nuts or digestives or a combination of the two
  • 120 g unsalted butter melted
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 800 g tinned condensed milk
  • Zest and juice of 4 largeor six small limes
  • 4 - 5 kiwis (we used Zespri SunGold for their golden colour and sweet taste) sliced

Method

  • Heat the oven to 170⁰c.
  • To make the base, blitz the biscuits in a food processor to make a fine crumb. Mix in the melted butter with a wooden spoon and then tip the mixture into a loose bottomed, high sided 20cm tart tin or a cake tin. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the tin with the back of the wooden spoon. Put in the fridge to chill.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, condensed milk, lime zest and juice.  Peel and slice two of the kiwis. 
  • Pour half of the lime mixture into the tart case, levelling it off. Place a layer of SunGold slices on top. Finish with the rest of the mixture, working carefully to achieve a tidy finish. If you have too much mixture you can use it as you would lemon curd, on ice cream, with yoghurt or on toast.
  • Put the tin on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, until the filling is set but still wobbly.
  • Cool, then chill for 2hours or overnight.  Decorate with the remaining slices of kiwi.
