January Cook of the Month: Key Lime Pie

This month I decided to try the famous cupcake bakery which is in London and New York. The book is a joy to look at with delicious pictures and easy to follow instructions. I wanted to try the Key Lime Pie, as this is something I have never tried before and is not a popular treat in the UK, but is a traditional american dessert, naked after the Florida grown lime .also i had loads of limes left over from christmas (^-^) .  I suppose a key lime pie is a cross between a cheesecake and a lemon meringue pie.

The natural green filing and the crunchy biscuit crust really compliment well, topped with fluffy meringue, or cream . I will definitely try this again as it is so easy to make, does not take much time and I think will suit well for summer BBQs and parties. The book helped me perfect my biscuit crust skill which before was hit and miss. You can find the book in all good bookstores, i got mine for christmas. Yum .

  1. This looks great! Which book is it from? I would love to try it! Did you use key limes or regular limes?

  2. Looks fabulous as usual. Love the colour of that lime filling. P.S. I’m reading this whilst eating a piece of Morello Cherry & Mascarpone cheesecake – not homemade, but still delicious

  3. Looks delicious! My mouth is watering just looking at your photos. I will definately have to give this recipe a try. Thanks for the link 🙂

  4. That looks amazing, I’ve never seen a Key Lime with a meringue top [I am crazy for meringues].

  5. Where on earth did that colour come from? I’ve never seen it look like that before.
    I’m guessing Key Limes are not easy to come by for you, they will produce a much lighter tint then you have. What did you use?
