Every time I look at the above picture, I want Key Lime Pie!!!
Key Lime Pie
Fresh limes are a must for this perfect citrus pie. Key limes, often found only in specialty produce departments, are smaller and rounder than the more common Persian limes. They also are more yellow than green. You can substitute Persian limes, but we don’t recommend using bottled lime juice for this recipe.
Yield: Makes 10 servings
- 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 (14-ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/4 cups Key lime juice
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Garnishes: grated lime zest and lime slices
1. Preheat oven to 325°. Mix graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and butter with hands; press firmly into a 10-inch pie plate. Bake at 325° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and let stand 15 minutes.
2. Whisk together condensed milk, lime juice, and eggs until well blended. Pour into crust, and bake at 325° for 18 to 20 minutes or until set. Chill at least 4 hours.
3. Combine crème fraîche and powdered sugar. Spread evenly over pie, and garnish, if desired.
Macadamia Key Lime Pie: Substitute 1/4 cup chopped dry roasted macadamia nuts for 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs, and add to 1 cup crumbs. Proceed as directed. Sprinkle additional 1/4 cup chopped dry roasted macadamia nuts evenly over topping.
God’s canvas greeted me this morning!
The Message (MSG)
12-17 Oh! Teach us to live well! Teach us to live wisely and well! Come back, God—how long do we have to wait?— and treat your servants with kindness for a change. Surprise us with love at daybreak; then we’ll skip and dance all the day long. Make up for the bad times with some good times; we’ve seen enough evil to last a lifetime. Let your servants see what you’re best at— the ways you rule and bless your children. And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us, confirming the work that we do. Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!
