- To make the filling, mix the sugar, lime juice and lime zest and whisk until the sugar has dissolved, then add the soft cheese and lightly fold into he lime, whisk the double cream then fold into the cheese and lime mix. Spoon over the biscuit base and return to the fridge for an hour or until set.
