A Pie story for Pi Day

My daughter’s favorite dessert is Key Lime Pie.

This is what she wants instead of a cake on her birthday.

So being the over-achiever that I am, I thought it would be extra special to make a REAL Key Lime pie from scratch.

I bought a bag of Key Limes.

The recipe called for 3/4 cup of juice.  I had to squeeze all the limes in the bag to get this much juice.

Then the recipe called for a tablespoon of zest.

Since I never read ahead on directions, I had to get zest from the smashed halves of tiny limes.

I am afraid there was some finger zest included.

The pie was beautiful.  I asked her how she liked it.

Since she is my daughter, she gave an unwisely honest answer.

It was too sour and Edwards’  Key Lime pie was better.

Well this could be the end of the story,

but there were all those cute little seeds left over.

  1. These are two years old. Even the tiny baby plants have mean thorns. They are so cute. I have quite a few. Wish I could send you some with the baby Kalanchoe daigremontianas. Ha.
