Getting the Perfect Crust
Aeroplane Jelly's lime jelly slice is a fast favourite, and the perfect buttery biscuit base is what makes this treat truly special! But how do you avoid a crumbly crust, or a hard, buttery mess?
Lime jelly slice crust is made with a few simple ingredients that many of us already have at home: Biscuits and butter. The key to making the perfect biscuit base is the correct crumb to butter ratio. 100g of Butter t 150g of plain sweet biscuits will help you achieve the perfect crust that's not too soft, and not too crumbly.
There are two popular ways of making a biscuit crumb. Get a rolling pin and a zip bag and bash those biscuits into a fine crumb, or put them into a food processor and give them a whiz. Either way, make sure that your crumbs are even with no visible large pieces left. Once you've got your crumbs, melt your butter in the microwave or on the stove.
Be sure to press your crumb layer firmly and evenly in your tin. This takes some patience and practice but is worth the effort when you see the crisp, clean lines of your lime dessert. Remember to let your crust cool, and butter harden before filling to avoid a soggy base.
Sleek Lines & Striking Colours!
Lime flavoured jelly, condensed milk, and gelatine are the key ingredients to this sweet and tangy filling! When combined, they create a rich and creamy dessert that is sure to please any palate.
To get the clean lines that make this treat so special, it's important to let your jelly layers set in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours. This will allow the filling to firm up and make getting clean lines easier.Read More Read Less
