Biscuity Lime Pie

Looks like summer has arrived and with that arrives BBQ season! This evening we are having our first BBQ of the year, with my father in law coming over. I know he loves his cakes and desserts and although I have been suffering with a cold and generally feeling run down this week, I didn’t want to let him down and not have a home-baked dessert waiting for him. I remember coming across this recipe a while back on the BBC Good Food website, perfect for a quick and easy dessert when short on time and energy. This pie has a wonderful mixture of a ginger nut biscuit base, combined with a zingy citrus topping to get your taste buds tingling. I have a feeling my father in law won’t be leaving this evening without a doggie bag (Tupperware).
I have linked the recipe below!

Maria, I only wish I could eat all of these lovely dishes you bake....I would give them all a go, especially this one, but I know I would become the size of a house as I can't just stop at one small slice like ladies should do...I just woarrff the whole thing down (maybe cutting a small slice for hubby of course...hahaha). No, but seriously, I admire your ability in baking!!
