Key Lime Pie Recipe

August 1, 2013

Can you believe I have never eaten Key Lime Pie? I have heard about it but never actually tried it. When I was in the supermarket the other day I saw some and bought it to try it. I liked the topping but I wasn’t very impressed with the crust and decided I would be able to do better. This weekend I decided to be adventurous and make it.

Luckily I had just been sent a selection of delicious looking cereal from Jordans Cereal and challenged to create a recipe using them. I received Jordans Nut and See Muesli, Jordans Country Crisp with Flame Raisins and Jordans Super 3 Seeds Granola. I thought one of these would make the perfect base for a Key Lime Pie. After some deliberation my son and I chose the Jordans Country Crisp with Flame Raisins. This is a mix of crunchy oat clusters and flame raisins. It has a lovely sweetness and crunch about it that we thought would perfectly compliment the lime topping.

I melted some butter and crushed the cereal a little bit, mixed them together and placed them into a cake tin. As you can see the raisins are incredibly large and very juicy. I know a few made it into my son’s mouth while we were mixing.

Next I created the topping, put it on top of the cereal base and added whipped cream to finish off the Key Lime Pie. I thought it would be nice to decorate the finished pie with lime zest but I had used all my limes making the pie. I will remember this for next time. The Key Lime Pie was lovely, a nice mixture of lime tartness, sweetness and crunch from the base. This is the finished result:
