I get pleasure from making Key Lime pies after we’re down right here in Florida.  I do love chocolate and determined to strive an Oreo cookie crust with the lime coconut filling.  I’ve not made an Oreo cookie crust earlier than, prior to now after I’m dwelling if I need to have a chocolate crust I’ve a recipe that I’ve developed for a Pate Sucrée pastry, however with out my food processor I don’t make it.

Elements:

  • 250 ml (1 cup) heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons icing sugar (sub 2 tbsp sugar)
  • 5-ounces (2/3 cup) unsweetened coconut milk
  • 14-ounces (1 can) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed or bottled Key lime juice
  • Zest of 1 lime, finely grated

To garnish:

  • Whipped cream (non-compulsory)
  • Toasted coconut (non-compulsory)
  • lime slices (non-compulsory)

 

Bourbon whipped cream thought

  • 1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Bourbon

 

Directions:

  • In a bowl, utilizing an electrical mixer beat heavy cream and sugar till creamy. Add the coconut milk, condensed milk, lime juice, and lime zest and whisk till fluffy and thick. Pour into crust and refrigerate for at the very least half-hour to set.
  • Earlier than serving, prime pie with whipped cream, sprinkle some toasted coconut and/lime slices or lime zest(if desired). Slice and serve.

Elements

22 common Oreo cookies

5 Tablespoons (71g) unsalted butter, melted

 

Directions

 

  • Make the crust: In a food processor or blender, pulse 22 Oreos (together with the cream filling) right into a high-quality crumb. You may as well place them in a zip-top bag and crush them into high-quality crumbs with just a little arm muscle and a rolling pin. You must have about 2 cups (packed) crumbs, or 250g. Pour crumbs into a big bowl.
  • Add the melted butter and stir to mix. The combination can be thick and fairly moist. Attempt to smash/break up any massive chunks.
  • Pour the combination into an ungreased 8-inch, 9-inch, or 10-inch pie dish, cake pan, springform pan, or sq. pan. With medium strain utilizing your hand, pat the crumbs down into the underside and up the perimeters to make a compact, thick crust. If the combination appears actually moist and isn’t forming a pleasant crust, grind up 2 extra Oreos and blend these crumbs in. Tip: You should use a small flat-bottomed measuring cup to assist press down the underside crust and easy out the floor, however don’t pack down too arduous. If making a pie, run a spoon across the backside “nook” the place the sting and backside meet to assist make a rounded crust⁠—this helps stop the crust from falling aside while you reduce slices.
  • For a baked dessert, pre-bake this crust per your filling recipe instructions. I normally pre-bake for 8–10 minutes at 350°F (177°C). For a no-bake filling corresponding to cookies & cream pie, bake for 10–12 minutes at 350°F (177°C). Cool the crust utterly earlier than utilizing, until your no-bake filling recipe instructs in any other case.  Don’t overlook to make use of pie weights to forestall the crust sides from sagging and the underside from puffing up.

 

Though we loved the pie, I discovered the Oreo cookie crust too candy for me.  I believe I’ll return to creating Ritz Cracker crusts after I’m with out my meals processor.
