Today, we had a special celebration because one of our staff members turned 50! This person is a lime fan, so I made a couple of key lime pies. Jack couldn't make it so we saved this last slice for him.
When I was in Key West, Florida, key lime pies by a guy named Kermit were the thang. Kermit's pies were everywhere...served by the slice, dipped in chocolate, you name it, it was there. And it was DELICIOUS. I searched online and wouldn't you know...I found a copy cat recipe. This pie tastes just like the one I had in Key West...and you don't even have to go anywhere. I do recommend eating this outside in the sunshine though. It'll give you the full Florida effect :-)
