2 cans condensed milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 Tbl grated lime zest
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 Tbl Heilala Pure Vanilla Paste
2 sleeves Ritz crackers

This dessert from columnist and food wizard J. Kenji Lopez Alt is a tart-creamy-sweet-salty summertime dream. Salty, buttery Ritz crackers make for the foundation of the dessert. The lime helps offset the rich-sweet condensed milk and heavy cream. Our only add-in is Heilala Pure Vanilla Paste to help enhance the buttery flavors and tangy lime. The hardest part of this dessert is waiting!


1.Whisk together the condensed milk, heavy cream and vanilla paste in a large bowl until combined. Add the lime zest and juice and whisk. The mixture will begin to pull together and thicken. Be sure to whisk for a full two minutes.
2.Use a deep-dish pie pan or an oval casserole dish. Spread 1 cup of the condensed milk mixture on the bottom of the dish. Top with a single layer of Ritz crackers. Repeat, alternating layers of filling and crackers, ending with a layer of filling.
3.Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight—the longer you wait, the softer the crackers. Garnish with lime zest and serve cold.
