Method

  • 1. To make the base, blitz the biscuits in a food processor until they are like fine crumbs and then combine with the melted butter. Press the mixture into the base and 4cm (1½") up the sides of the tin. Chill the base while you make the filling.

  • 2. Whisk together the filling ingredients until thick and creamy. Spoon over the biscuit base and chill for at least 1 hour.

  • 3. Remove the pie from the tin and place on a serving plate. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the top and leave to set. Before serving, decorate with the lime wedges and the zest.
