A great Key Lime Pie is difficult to find. Sure, you can go to many restaurants and see it on the menu, but they are usually too sweet (that’s the condensed milk), too sour (that’s the artificial lime juice) or too green (that’s the artificial food coloring). Did you know that lime juice is not green, not to mention neon green? Go figure….
I don’t use condensed milk, artificial lime juice or artificial food coloring. All of my ingredients are local, fresh, REAL and tasty.
You want fresh, tasty, light, ever-so-perfect lime and sweetness for your Key Lime Pie. You want your meringue cooked to perfection. You want unique, new spins on your favorite desserts, and yet familiar and comforting all at the same time. That’s what you get when you buy my Key Lime Pie.
I make my crust by hand with graham crackers, sugar, butter, and spices. I don’t use machines, so there may be variations and flaws, but that’s what it means to be human, right?
Also, instead of just thinking the meringue was enough, I went and topped it all off with whipped cream clumps frozen and then rolled in cinnamon, and then covered in a light dusting of powdered sugar and lime zest.
