This is one of the favourites from my first cookbook, For Food's Sake, still available in my store today. It has been a best seller in Australia since it came out! Go get yours, there has never been a better price!
A tangy lime pie is hard to beat. It does take quite a while to set but we want the mousse texture (as the name would suggest!) rather than a rubber mallet texture. So go with that, be sure you make it in advance with plenty of setting time, overnight if possible. I hope you love it as much as we do!
