A sweet and sour delicacy presented by the cookbook author Berenice "La Bere" Granada Vargas of "KOCHEN WIE IN MEXIKO". The Carlota de Limón is created with the Marias cookies from our store. A highlight, that can be eaten both in winter and summer time as well at coffee and cake time of your day.
This dish is based on lots of condensed milk and whipped cream, delicious cookies and lime and is relatively quick to prepare.
Did you know. La Bere has cooked in various restaurants in Mexico. Today she is a sought-after cooking teacher and gives cooking classes primarily in the Munich area.
We introduce you to Mexican food not only as spicy salsas.

- 6 Organic limes
- 340 g Condensed milk
- 220 g Whipped cream
- 400 g Sweetened condensed milk
- 170 g package of Mexican Marias Cookies
- Utensils: Mixer and about 1.5 liters round cake pan, refrigerator
1. Wash and squeeze five of the limes. Reserve the juice and set aside the remaining lime for a later decoration.
2. Place condensed milk, whipped cream, sweetened condensed milk and lime juice in a container for a blender and blend until you get a creamy consistency.
3. Place Maria's cookies in the baking pan, so that they fill the pan almost perfectly, spread the mixture partially over them, cover again with cookies (the intermediate layers can be spread more loosely), repeat layers until the cake pan is filled and your mixture is used up (best to save 2-3 more cookies.)
4. Put the mold in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
5. Before serving, decorate with a few cookie pieces, slice the remaining lime and also place on top of your Carlota as decoration.
This delicious dessert can be found among many other recipes in the book by La Bere "KOCHEN WIE IN MEXIKO" (e.g. here at Thalia oder Amazon) finden.
