i didnt have much money and wanted to make a refreshing desert i had most of the ingridients here just had to get the strawberries and created this myself ..

make the lime jelly up with half pint of boiling water leave to cool a little then whisk in the evaporated milk up to a pint. (this comes out like lime mousse and tastes fab) melt the butter in a small pan and crush half the packet or whole packet if you want thicker base and add to the butter. place bicuit base in a flan dish or deep caserole dish. flaten and press down with a spoon.. put in fridge for 10-15 mins then takeout pour on the mousse mixture and put back in the fridge to set.. cut the strawberries in half or leave whole the choice is yours decorate the top of the flan when set. serve with cream if liked or on its own. cheap simple and a must for lime lovers or quick desert for the kids.

you can use any fruit that goes with limes and you could vary the jellys so you could do straberry mouse and raspberry topping or vice verser or peach and nectarine the options you have are huge experiment and enjoy ;-) (not best pic couldnt get the cropping to work )
