The Perfect Key Lime Pie

With the few inklings of Spring we have been having (that means we have actually seen the sun here in the NW), tulips in the grocery store and everything green on Pinterest I have been totally craving key lime. Maybe the fact that a Caribbean vacation sounds really good right about now too has added to the key lime craving.

In order to curb that craving I made a key lime pie this weekend.  I have to say it is pretty amazing.  And it may just be the Perfect Key Lime Pie or at least until I really can get myself to the Florida Keys and taste the real thing!!

Today I’ve got a step by step tutorial for you – it’s pretty and easy and so worth the effort!

A key lime pie starts with a graham cracker crust.  Now you can buy a premade one at the store but one made from scratch is SO MUCH better!  You don’t even have to crush your graham crackers you can find graham cracker crumbs in the baking aisle.  Just combine that with some butter and sugar and you’ve got a homemade graham cracker crumb.  The perfect base for a key lime pie.  You do not need to bake the crust before you fill it.
