Each year I replace my birthday cake with a Key Lime Pie, and since all pies are ignored by The Grizzly Kid it is an extra happy birthday to me as I eat key lime pie for days—laugh with me because there is no way it lasts that long with my serious lack of self control.
This recipe is my current go-to, so simple, so creamy, and I add extra lime juice to make it so tart, the way I love it most. And for a homemade graham cracker crust I just crushed the crackers, mixed in some melted butter and pressed it into my pan, then baked it at 350° for 5 minutes—it is a bit crumbly, but the filling holds it together perfectly.
Now my birthday is a month hence, but I took my dessert assignment at the last family gathering as an opportunity to make this favorite of mine and it was liked by all, along with a peach tart that was loved by all.
Look, isn’t it loverly?
