1/2C Butter, melted


2 Large Egg Whites

1/2 C Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (I use Key Limes)

1/4 C Tequila (I over-pour this a bit)



Place cookies (all but 8) and nuts into food processor, transfer into bowl and combine with butter, until all crumbs are moist.  Set aside 3 T of crumbs.  Press remaining crumbs into 10 inch tart pan (Can use pie pan)


-In medium bowl, combine egg whites and sugar, beat with electric mixer until soft peaks form, set aside.

-In large bowl, combine remaining ingredients, whisk together until well blended, fold in egg white mixture.
