How to Make Island Key Lime Torte

Step-by-Step

  1. Whip cream in mixing bowl until firm peaks form. Mix the condensed milk, lemon juice, lime juice and lime zest in medium bowl. Fold in 2 cups of the whipped cream. Reserve remaining whipped cream for the assembly.
  2. Cream butter and powdered sugar in mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add flour and cornmeal and mix well. Stir in macadamia nuts and 1/2 cup coconut. Divide dough into halves and press each half into an 8 inch circle on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
