Dessert Oscar Menu 2013: Lime of Pie
We just can’t get over our Lime of Pie, the dish we’re making for Life of Pi.
Ingredients: 2 cups Bisquick®, 1/3 cup cream cheese, 1 tbsp. soft butter, 2 tbsp. sugar, 28 oz. sweet condensed milk, 1 lime – 3/4 cup lime juice & lime zest, 1/2 cup sour cream
Directions: Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, add Bisquick®, cream cheese, butter, and sugar – mix until it forms a dough. To firm a bit more, put in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Remove and roll out. Roll into tart pan (you can use regular pie tin or press into spring form pan). Form to the pan & using a fork, pop a few air holes before putting in the oven for about 6-8 minutes. You’ll add the filling to the crust before putting back into the oven. Side note: if you don’t have time to make a crust, feel free to use a pre-made crust.
In a large bowl, add sweet condensed milk, lime juice, sour cream, and about 3/4 of the lime zest and mix well before adding to the pie crust. Put it back into the oven for about 6-8 minutes more until the center starts to show “pin bubbles”. Take out and cool. Remove from pan (depending on the pie pan you chose). Sprinkle the remaining lime zest over the top and it’s ready to serve!
It’s the perfect compliment to a movie with many sweet and tart moments.
