For a real treat and a taste of the south, make my recipe for Key Lime Pie which offers a smooth tart filling with a sweet graham cracker crust.
We recently were on vacation in Williamsburg, Virginia and in the process of doing some research of the area I came across Jamestown Pie Company. When we arrived in Williamsburg we stopped and picked up a Key Lime Pie and a Blackberry Peach Pie from the pie company to enjoy the week we were on vacation. There were four of us on vacation and we all were in love with these pies.
My husband Bill is a huge fan of Key Lime Pie. After getting back from vacation I thought I would give Key Lime Pie a try. You start with mixing together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cinnamon and butter and “ta-ah”, you have a crust. Then you whisk together sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, key lime juice and “ta-da” you have the filling. Sounds pretty easy, right? Well, I am here to tell you, it is easy.
I added some whipped topping to make it look pretty and add a little more sweetness to the Key Lime Pie. My husband gave a thumbs up to this pie and said it was as good as the pie from Jamestown Pie Company.
