Using a balloon whisk, mix the condensed milk and cream until combined, then add the lime juice and the majority of the zest (it will thicken!). Pour onto your biscuit base and chill for at least 1-2 hours.

This Key Lime Pie recipe can also be made with lemons – replace the five limes with four lemons for a lovely fresh twist. Or, try gingernut biscuits in the base they go beautifully with the tangy lime.
