key lime pie

the polar vortex is real.  it has been colder in dc the past few weeks than it’s ever been.  i like the cold but man this is too cold for anyone’s good.  fortunately, it got a little warmer last week.  it’s sad when you get excited for 30 degrees.

chris requested that i make a key lime pie which was perfect to combat some of the winter blues.  i make key lime pie cupcakes often, but i’ve only made key lime pie once before.  i used the recipe my coworker gave me – she made it a while back for the office.  it was divine.  so i used the same recipe this time.

this pie is super easy and only has few ingredients.  wonderful.  i also like that it’s not too tart.  it has the perfect amount of lime flavor while still being nice and creamy.  plus i love graham cracker crust so that is definitely one of my favorite parts of this pie.
