Finely grind Digestive biscuits, mix with melted butter, one spoon of sugar and mix well. Press mixture into cake tin. Whisk yolks for 5 minutes, then add condensed milk, lemon juice and grated lime zest. Pour the mixture over the base and bake at 180°CC for 15 min. Once cold, spread on surface a thin layer of lime jam. Decorate with whipped cream.

Dry biscuits are perfect for making cheesecakes bases, as they combine very well with butter, that must be at room temperature.
