Key lime pie...brings back memories of when my husband and I went to the Florida Keys several years ago. Lots of sun, deep sea fishing, parasailing, and of course, lots of good eats including fresh key lime pie!
I love key lime pie and until we made it in class, I never realized how easy it is to make! Garnish with some lime slices and whipped cream and you will put many people at awe.
I whipped up my own crust by throwing some graham crackers and melted butter into my food processor. All I had on hand were Cinnamon graham crackers. I was a bit worried about the cinnamon flavor with the key lime but it turned out amazing. I think I may have discovered something there!
