Easy Key Lime Pie

All the best desserts have the word ‘easy’ in the title (especially if it’s a Wednesday evening and you’d much rather be sitting on the sofa with your feet up). Although you need to set aside some chilling time, in this case ‘easy’ doesn’t have to mean you skimp on the ‘wow’ factor. Although we haven’t used the classic key limes in this recipe, this scrummy pudding is still a sweet, refreshing palate cleanser at the end of a meal.

Spruce it up

Of course, you could sprinkle over a little more lime zest, use candied peel or, if you’re really looking to push the boat out, make some meringue to top it off.
