I love key lime.
Can I just say that again?!
I LOVE key lime!
Every year when they come in season, and make their way to my grocery store, I always buy a whole bunch of key limes and make my world famous Key Lime Cheesecake. Ok, so its not exactly world famous.. or rather, not until now. But with the internet, who knows, maybe it is now ‘World Famous’. 😉
But in last night’s last Art of Pies class (yes, if you listen carefully you can hear my soft sad whimpering at the thought of it being my last pie class), we made Key Lime Pie. I will admit it was alot of work, especially when you add in the fact that we also made a Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, but it was definitely well worth it. So for the very last class, the flavours of key lime, chocolate and peanut butter couldn’t have been a better way to end a fabulous pie class.
Anyway, I digress. The Key Lime Pie we made had a chocolate infused crust, combined with oats, coconut and walnuts. A key lime filling was poured into the crust and decorated with a whip cream piped border and curled key lime slices. Oh so delicious!
The Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie had a peanut and graham crumb crust. The peanut butter filling is super fluffy b/c of the peanut butter combined with cream cheese, whipped to perfection, and then whip cream was folded in to make it extra fluffy.. Yum! Then it was covered by chocolate ganache. It was finally decorated by sprinkling mini chocolate chips and chopped peanuts on top.
Yes.. you should be drooling now…
