Sweet Summer Pie Recipe

Does anyone else think that the dessert you bake says something about the person you are? Chocolate cake: You're a classy classic. Espresso Ice Cream Cake: Probably a Starubucks addict (thats me!). Baking choices are quite obviously the window to a persons soul.

So, what dessert says: I am marrying into your family soon and I swear, I'm like, a really cool person. (please like me)

Last weekend we visited the bf's family and I was tasked with bringing dessert. I wanted there to be a taste of summer in every bite, something celebratory but without screaming "red, white and blue!"

So I made my very first key lime pie. And if I do say so myself--wow it was good. It was probably the fact that I check millions of reviews before choosing a recipe my baking skills. I think it won over the future in laws. At the very least it lulled them into a comfy after dinner food coma. Which is alright by me.

Find the recipe here. Make it. Its tangy-sweet goodness.
Oh yeah I made the graham cracker crust from this recipe. Its so good!

I've never made key lime pie, or had it for that matter. But we do have a key lime pie ice cream at work and it's pretty yummy!

You're too cute Rach! I think you may be onto something. My signature dessert is Lemon Bars and in fact I think it WAS the first dessert I brought to his parents' house! What does a Lemon Bar say about me? I'm tangy? A sourpuss or sweet and a bit of a tart? lol! I'm glad to hear it was a smashing success!
