Oh, my ... this was absolutely delightful. I actually own this cookbook, and don't know how I missed this recipe, so thanks for bringing it to my attention! I had a bunch of limes to use up (the perils of shopping at Costco), and this was a fabulous way to use 'em. I used half-and-half and light cream, rather than milk and whipping cream, just 'cause I had them on hand. I think you could use any variety from skim milk (using cornstarch as a binder) to cream, and it'd turn out wonderfully. Thanks for posting this! (Oh, it took about 5 minutes to put together, and made 6-8 servings.)
