LOOKING for: Lime dessert I remember from the 50s
I remember being taken along to "Ladies Luncheons" with my Mama back in the 1950s where the ladies would bring light dishes to share and eat together. (Picture little hats and white gloves!)
One that I remember was a dessert that must have been wildly popular back then - it was always there on the luncheon table! It had a crumb crust on the bottom and was served cut in squares that were about 2 inches or more tall and topped with a tiny sprinkling of the crumb mixture like the crust. I recall an intense lime flavor and a wonderfully light texture - like "whoosh" in your mouth.
For some reason I think it was made with evaporated milk and lime juice but I may have dreamed that.
Anybody remember or have this recipe?
