Directions:

  1. Line the bottom of each of four 6oz (175ml) ramekins with a biscuit. Put the cream cheese in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth, then beat in the condensed milk until well blended.
  2. Add the lime zest and lime juice and beat until the mixture becomes thick and glossy. Divide among the ramekins and smooth the tops. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Just before serving, garnish with the extra lime zest, and serve.
Tips:
  • The biscuit base does soften as it chills, but if you prefer a softer base, crumble the biscuit and mix it with a little butter melted in the microwave.
