What type of baker are you?
Do you get in your kitchen and tear it up with a mess here and there, maybe even get a little flour in your hair. Or are you a neat baker that picks up those measuring spoons as you go along?
Do you wear an Apron or do you dare to bake without one?
For me, I wear an apron as I am a mixture of mess and neat. I tidy up as I go along, but I really get into the therapeutic joy of creating an edible concoction.
So when I made this incredible edible heavenly Key Lime pie I knew it was a recipe that I just had to share with you all.
One of the best and yummiest things about this recipe is the crust.
This is a mixture of butter, vanilla wafers and macadamia nuts…I am totally blown away by the combination of flavors and will never make an ordinary graham cracker crust again!
Yes this is the best pie crust that I have ever had. (except for Mom’s)
I found this fabulous Summertime Key Lime recipe in Southern Lady Magazine.
The cool thing is this, they have an online Recipe Box!
A few weeks ago I shared a Lemon Curd-Filled Cake recipe from this lovely magazine too, as you can see I am into lemon and limes.
That reminds me that I need to be getting a Lemon Tree ASAP, maybe I will go to Covington’s Nursery in Rowlette and see what they have in that department.
We get some amazing light in our kitchen and I’d sure like to have a Lemon Tree in my kitchen come Winter time!
Do you have a Lemon Tree?? If so I’d love to hear how it is growing for you.
As you can see the texture of this Key Lime Pie is spot on with a crust that cuts easily and yet remains firm.
The Key Lime flavor is not overpowering and the pie is actually best on the second day.
Recipe is easy to follow.
Pie crust is one of the best that I ever tasted.
This would be a lovely dessert to serve for any occasion and it is quite simple.
Thank you for joining me and have a fantastic weekend.
Happy crafting and baking to you!
