Key Lime Pie

Every year as a kid, my mother used to make a dozen key lime pies for the annual Church spaghetti supper. 

It’s really easy, and everyone loves it. Creamy, yet tangy.

I’m not aware of the availability of graham cracker crusts in Europe… so for my Belgian friends consider this a ‘lime custard’, which you can put into dishes and serve as a custardy dessert in tiny ramekins. 

You can also add whipped cream on top. My pop loves whipped cream, and to be fair it does make a great decoration, together with a little shaving of lime.
