Ingredients

  • 6

    egg yolks

  • 1

    whole egg

  • 3/4

    cup fresh lime juice, strained (about 6 large limes)

  • 22

    gingersnap cookies, 2" in diameter

  • 1

    can sweetened, condensed milk

  • 4

    teaspoons finely grated lime zest

  • finely chopped candied ginger slices

  • key lime slices

Directions

In a small bowl, beat egg yolks and egg just to combine. In a medium saucepan, heat lime juice over medium heat until just simmering. Gradually whisk half of juice into egg mixture, then pour egg mixture back into saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until mixture has thickened slightly and is smooth, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and rub egg-yolk mixture through s sieve into a clean bowl. Let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled. Meanwhile, put gingersnaps into a sturdy freezer bag and pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin until cookies are broken into coarse crumbs (you want some texture so don't pound them too much). Whisk condensed milk and lime zest into egg-yolk mixture. Layer gingersnap crumbs and lime filling into 6-8 dessert glasses, repeating layers twice and using about 2 tablespoons crumbs and 2 tablespoons lime filling for each layer. Chill for at least 1 hour. Garnish each dessert with candied ginger and key lime slices.
