This week I’m very excited. I’m making a recipe that I’ve needed to do since without end.
I’ll provide you with a touch: fluffy and citrus.
Yup, that’s proper, I’m making a mile-high key lime pie. I needed to make a meringue, and I needed to make a key lime pie, in order that’s precisely what I did.
The tangy filling and the fluffy meringue go collectively like PB&J. It’s a surprisingly straightforward recipe.
However I imagine anybody making an attempt this recipe ought to think about using a hand mixer. That meringue goes to take some critical arm energy should you determine to do it by hand!
On this recipe, I used my signature graham cracker crust that yow will discover in my cheesecake cookie recipe. It’s a superb base for therefore many different desserts, so I made a decision to go that route.
The benefit of this recipe is you could swap up the flavors within the filling. You may do lemon, mango, and even coconut. The chances are limitless with this mile-high pie!
