1.Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease a 20cm loose-bottom flan tin.
2.Crush or process the biscuits to fine crumbs. Combine with the melted butter and press into the base and sides of the prepared tin. Place on a baking tray.
3.In a large jug combine the eggs, condensed milk and cream. Gradually whisk in lime zest and juice.
4.Pour onto the crust and bake for 30 minutes, until just set. Cool then chill in the fridge.

• You can swap the gingernut biscuits for chocolate or malt, if you prefer. • You will need about ⅓ cup lime juice for this recipe. • We finished ours with icing sugar and a little lime zest. Lime and ginger are also a great match for chocolate, so to take this tart to the next level, garnish with grated chocolate or a drizzle of rich chocolate sauce.
