For the cookie crust, mix all the ingredients at the same time and bake the dough at 320 F for 15 minutes.
For the meringue, whisk the egg whites and sugar at high speed. When you can make peaks, add the zest and lemon juice, and stir for three more minutes.
Let the cookie crust cool completely before adding the margarita mousse mixture on top. Cover the mousse with the lime meringue and torch for a smokey flavor.
