Mexican Lime Pie – Very Easy and Cheap to Make

In my cooking club we have a different theme each month. In June it was all about desserts. My husband recommended that I make a Mexican lime pie because it is one of his favorite desserts and the last time he ate this dessert was about 15 years ago. He calls it the poor’s people dessert because it is cheap to make and many poor people in Mexico make this dessert. You’ll need:

5 to 8 limes

2 12oz cans of condensed milk

1 pack of maria cookies

1 medium size vanilla cookie crust pie pan

Pour the 2 cans of condensed milk into a medium bowl. Squeeze 5 to 8 medium size limes into the condensed milk and mix well. Use more or less limes depending on how tart you like it.

You are going to layer the mix and the cookies in the vanilla cookie crust pie pan.

Pour about a third cup of mix into the vanilla cookie pie pan then place the maria cookies evenly over the mix. Pour another layer of mix over the cookies then add another layer of cookies over the mix.

Finish the pie off by pouring one more layer of mix over the cookies and spread evenly, then place the pie in the refrigerator overnight. If you like, place thin slices of limes around the pie to decorate.

The pie taste similar to a key lime pie. As you can see, there is very little ingredients, really easy to make and taste like you really put some time into it. Instead of buying a store bought pie, impress people by making your own dessert. Enjoy!
