Ingredients for crust:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs, about 15 full crackers
1 stick salted butter, melted
1 extra large egg
Mix the above ingredients together and press into an 8 by 10 inch baking dish! Then into a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes!
For the filling:
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 stick salted butter, room temp
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 extra large eggs, room temp
2 (8 oz) tubs of mascarpone cheese, room temp
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
Zest and juice the limes. Set lime juice aside. Put sugar, zest and salted butter in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat thoroughly. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Add and mix in lime juice and salt. Then pour into a heavy sauce pan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened. About 10 minutes. Once thickened pour into a clean container with a lid and cool in the fridge. Whip your room temp mascarpone cheese and 3 tablespoons sugar together until smooth. Add cooled lime curd to the mascarpone mixture and beat until smooth and well mixed. Pour over the cooled graham cracker crust, cover with foil and put in the fridge to chill for at least 1 hour. Then enjoy!
