Anyways, I don’t know if its the beautiful weather or what but I have been craving Key Lime everything. My first thought was to make key lime ice cream sandwiches. I had this epiphany approximately 48 hours after I donated our ice cream maker because we never used it. When I told my wife about my plan, she gave me side eye so strong it would have made weaker men cry. Thankfully, I have become immune to it and I just pretend I don’t see it. I did realize that it would probably be a bad idea to buy another small appliance when we are in the middle of packing. Of course, by the middle, I mean we donated some stuff in preparation for packing.
We are prepping to move. We have not moved in 12 years and we have accumulated a lot of crap in that time. Also I remembered how much I hate packing.
Moving on, I decided to go with key lime pie. This actually worked out since the only things I needed to buy for it are the sweetened condensed milk and graham crackers. In complete honesty I did not use key limes. Those little buggers are expensive. Plus I already had regular limes in my refrigerator.
The fastest way to make the crust is throw it in the food processor but because Peanut was sleeping, I just smashed the crackers with a meat tenderizer. Both ways work, just make sure it crush them up finely. I will say this recipe is supposed to chill for several hours, preferably overnight. I will also say, ours only chilled for about 3 hours because priorities. It was delicious anyways.
