Evaporated milk Sweetened condensed milk Lime juice Maria cookies packages
You need a lot of lime juice. In Mexico, we primarily use key limes for both savory and sweet recipes. Juice the limes and set aside.
To a blender, add the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and lime juice, then blend until smooth.
To a large plate or decorative dish, add of the lime mixture.
Add a layer of Maria cookies. Break the cookies in half to cover the areas open areas.
Add another layer of the Maria cookies. Add some of the lime mixtures. Continue layering until there are no more ingredients left.
Cover and refrigerate for 5 hours. Decorate with lime zest, slices of lime, or fruit.
Look at those layers! The longer the Carlota de Limón sits in the fridge, the better the cookies will absorb the lime mixture.
