Ingredients
  • Lime Curd:
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 14 eggs
  • Crust Layer:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 12 whole graham crackers
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions

For the lime curd: Combine the lime juice, sugar and butter in a medium saucepan and cook on a low flame until the butter melts. Beat the eggs, add to the saucepan and stir until combined. Bring to a simmer. Stir constantly and cook until the mixture is a thick and creamy consistency, 5 to7 minutes. Pass through a mesh strainer. Chill for 2 hours in the fridge.

For the crust: Add the sugar and graham crackers to a food processor. Pour in the melted butter and pulse to combine.

For the topping: Whip the cream with the sugar until stiff.

To assemble, layer the crumb mixture into the bottom of a serving cup, followed by the lime curd. Top with the whipped cream mixture and garnish with lime zest.
