Birthday pie

Instead of birthday cake, Haley prefers a Key Lime Pie.  I made two of them for her birthday dinner, and boy were they good!  Made from real key limes…

P1010486P1010484…and the zest of about 8 or so of those little buggers, which had to be done before they were sliced and juiced…

And a from-scratch graham cracker crust. 

Nary a slice is left.


If you want the recipe, click here.  Leave a comment if you make one and let me know what you think.  You won’t be disappointed.  Works well using lemons (real ones), too.

Happy Sunday, y’all!

Oh, I may have to try that! I'm usually a cake baker more so than pies but I do love a good key lime pie!

I've never had Key Lime Pie. I'm sure there is something terribly wrong about that.

Have a terrific day. Big hugs from sunny California. :)
