    AZPARZYCH's Note:

    An intense lemon-lime filling is cradled by a shortbread-style butter crust, which is made especially tender by using a combination of all-purpose and cake flours. Prep time does not include time needed to chill the crust. By Elinor Klivans

      Made for your Wk 3 Football Pool win, this dessert was a big hit at a family dinner. I debated for a fleeting moment whether I would invest the time for the crust prep vs a more std pie crust, but I am so glad I did. The crust is fantastic & worth every moment of prep time spent. Altho made as written, DH & I are esp fond of the lime flavor & I used all lime juice (+ green food coloring) for the filling vs a mix of lemon & lime. The filling texture is more cheesecake than custard & that may have happened since it did not appear set & I cooked it longer than suggested. The next time I make this, I will bake it as suggested to see if it sets up well as it chills. Thx for sharing this yummy recipe w/us. :-)
