Key Lime Pie

This week I’ve done an easy bake because I’ve been busy practising making and decorating a cake for a competition that I’m entering this weekend.  So I’ve gone for Key Lime Pie.

It’s a bit similar to a cheesecake and is made from condensed milk, lime juice and cream with a biscuit base.

It’s an easy pudding to make and everybody likes it.

Did you know – The first Key Lime Pie was made in the 1850’s.  Because there were not many cows on the Florida Keys the residents would use sweetened condensed milk and it seemed a great idea to mix this with the limes that grew in the Keys.

In 2006 Key Lime pie was adopted in the state of Florida as the official pie.  IMG_2149
