Key Lime Pie
Why I Love This Recipe
After having had this wonderful pie in the US I just had to find the recipie for it. I found several different recipies for it e.g. in Bon Appetit and this is what I made of it and it turned out really great! A picture will follow when I will make it next time and that will be pretty soon as I have some Key Lime Juice from fresh Key limes that I measure for one Key Lime Pie and freeze in a plastic bag and of course thaw before use :-)
That way I can make the Key Lime Pie not only a few days after I return from my US Trips but, whenever I like!
