Key Lime Pie

Posted by Trish on July 17, 2010 at 6:15 PM

Everyone should take advantage of the summer fruits that are vastly abundant and delicious right now.  I decided to use this opportunity to make key lime pie.

 Key limes are smaller than the average limes you usually spot at the market.  They range from yellow to green in colour and produce a lot of juice for their size.  Roughly 3 lbs or 20 key lime pies will supply enough juice for a 9 inch pie.

I loved the simplicity of key lime pie and the decadent taste.  With the perfect harmony of sweet and tartness, key lime pies make great desserts for the summer heat.  Key lime pie bakes like a cheesecake where a custard is baked on a graham cracker crust, and then chilled until ready to serve.  

The pie is decadent so slice thinly and serve whipped cream and fresh slice of lime.

I'm interested in substituting limes with lemon to produce a custard lemon pie.  I would suspect it would be similar to lemon meringue pie with a thicker and decadent texture.
