dessert, for dads, recipes

key lime pie

I never make pie…well, hardly ever. This key lime pie recipe, from a long-time friend, is an easy, fast, and fantastic diversion during a pandemic, or anytime. Mine wasn’t quite this pretty. I took a ready-to-use graham cracker crust, brushed it with egg white and pre-baked it PRIOR to filling and baking again. I used regular old limes instead of key limes—not the easiest to get in Chicago—but was very happy with the result. We found the pie rich enough that we were happy with teeny slices. This made it last several days as a perfect complement to binge-watching. Now, back to the store to start all over!

Dad Note: This is so kid-friendly. They can mix and stir, grate the lime zest (watch those fingers!), and pour the batter into the pie shell.
