The Weekend of Sin, aka The 10,000 Calories Weekend

Ah, finally. I've not posted pics in the longest time (took a while to remember my username and password for my photobucket account) and it's been yonks since I last posted a recipe. Anyway, stayed over at my parents' over the weekend and went mad making utterly sinful desserts. The last time I was over, my mom made apple crumble. This time, my sis and I decided to satisfy my curiosity and craving for the key lime pie.

Well, I'm not sure if the limes we used were key limes, but who cares. We used the calamansi limes (are they the same? No one knows) and spent a bloody long time squeezing the juice. And after that, we decided to make a frozen cheesecake since we had leftover crust material. (It's midnight, sentence construction isn't my strongest point at this time of the day.) Anyway, to make up for the many months that I've not posted anything, I've got two recipes!

10000 Calories
Excuse the poor quality of the pics. Was taken with my camera phone while balancing a fork in my mouth.
Left: Frozen cheesecake. Right: Dunnowhatlime pie.

Hmm. Make it three. One more for the crust. Lol.

Crust Material

1 pack of digestive biscuits
125g butter, melted.

Crush digestive biscuits. Add melted butter. Mix.

Final product should look like wet sand.

Simple Frozen Cheesecake

Crust material (half of what was made in the above "recipe")
2 blocks of cream cheese, room temperature
1 can of condensed milk
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Place the crust mixture in a 9 inch pie pan and press down firmly.

Beat cream cheese, condensed milk and lime juice together in a large bowl till nice and smooth and creamy. Pour over crust. Lick bowl.

Freeze in freezer till set. Approximately, 4 hours?

Dunnowhatlime Pie

Crust material (half of what was made in the above "recipe")
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons of lime zest
4 egg yolks
1 can of condensed milk

Preheat oven to 175 degrees celcius.

Place the crust mixture in a 9 inch pie pan and press down firmly.

In a large bowl, beat egg yolks with lime zest. Mix in lime juice, and then condensed milk. Make sure everything is mixed together thoroughly. Pour on crust. Lick bowl only if you aren't worried about salmonella.

Bake in oven for about 20 min, till everything is set. Then let it cool before putting it in the refrigerator for about 4 hours or overnight.


Yummy yummy yummy. The cheesecake was nice and creamy, but depending on how you like your cheesecake, it wasn't very dense at all. And it tended to soften if you didn't finish it up fast enough.

The dunnowhatlime pie was tangy and delicious, but I don't think the recipe would suffer much if you didn't use all 1/2 cups of lime juice. This is not for people who do not like sour stuff though. Hehe.
