    here is a fovorite in central florida:

    Key Lime Pie by GourmetSleuth
    This is a recipe for "real" Key Lime pie. Real Key lime pie is not green and it does not have a soft "pudding" texture. The pie gets its true pale yellow color from the egg yolks that predominate the ingredient list. And the texture is a "firm custard". Be careful that you don't over-bake the pie or it will be "rubbery". For best results use fresh Key Limes, not bottled juice. The traditional preparation does not put any meringue on the top of the pie. This is a very simple recipe and only takes a few minutes to prepare and 12 minutes to bake.

    i n g r e d i e n t s (crust)
    16 graham crackers, crushed
    3 tablespoons sugar
    1 cube (1/4 lb) margerine or butter

    d i r e c t i o n s (crust)
    Mix the ingredients and press them into a 9" pie plate. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 10 - 12 minutes until lightly browned. Place on a rack to cool.

    _________________________

    i n g r e d i e n t s (pie)
    4 large or extra large egg yolks
    1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 cup fresh key lime juice (approximately 12 Key limes)
    2 teaspoons grated lime peel, green portion only
    Whipping cream for garnish (optional)

    d i r e c t i o n s (pie)
    Use an electric mixer and beat the egg yolks until they are thick and turn to a light yellow, don't over mix. Turn the mixer off and add the sweetened condensed milk. Turn speed to low and mix in half of the lime juice. Once the juice is incorporated add the other half of the juice and the zest, continue to mix until blended (just a few seconds). Pour the mixture into the pie shell and bake at 350F for 12 minutes to set the yolks and kill any salmonella in the eggs.


    s e r v i n g
    If you are using the whipping cream garnish, prepare the cream. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.


    Servings: 8

    Buttermilk Pie
    By Karin Calloway

    While Buttermilk Pie is a Southern tradition, its luscious sweet-tart flavor should be a welcome addition to summer picnics and parties anywhere.

    Recipes abound for Buttermilk Pie, and my favorite recipe has been in my files for years. I began preparing Buttermilk Pie in college, before I was much of a cook. Like most custard pies, it’s a cinch to put together.

    Buttermilk is, of course, the common ingredient in this classic pie. The other ingredients, eggs, melted butter, and sugar, differ in amount from recipe to recipe. Many recipes use cornstarch as a thickener, but I opt for a bit of flour to do the job. And, my version gets dose of fresh lemon juice for flavor, while other version have a vanilla accent.

    Buttermilk Pie is great for summer entertaining, as it travels fairly well and needs to be prepared ahead. Bake it early in the day, or even a day before serving, then slice the pie and garnish with fresh berries for a Southern summer sweet.

    Buttermilk Pie

    1 unbaked refrigerated piecrust or frozen pie shell
    1 ½ cups sugar
    3 tablespoons flour
    3 eggs, beaten
    2 tablespoons melted butter
    1 ½ cups buttermilk
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If using a refrigerated piecrust, fit into a pie tin, trim and crimp edges and set aside.

    Combine sugar and flour in a medium bowl. Add the eggs, butter, buttermilk and lemon juice and mix well. Pour into the prepared pie shell. Bake 50 minutes to 1 hour, until pie is set. Remove from oven and cool on a rack for 30 minutes. Refrigerate several hours or overnight before serving.

    Makes 1 pie.
