How to Make Cherry Key Lime Pie

I just love the combination of Lime and cherries. So I thought why not to create a variation of my Lime Pie and make it more tasty and romantic this year? Sounds good right.

To be honest It didn’t came out as I had in mind. I wanted to create some cute swirly shapes with the cherry mixture but it didn’t turn out that well but I must say that it tastes SO good that I had to share it anyway.

Cherry Key Lime Pie Recipe

Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC 350ºF.

For the crust. Turn the graham crackers into crumbs with a food processor. When the crumbs are very small add the softened butter and mix with your hands for about 2 min to blend it well.

Butter or spray 9″ springform pan. Pour the mixture in the pan and press and pat into bottom until it’s even. Bake at 350 ºF degrees 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

In a blender mix the egg yolks and the condensed milk for 3 minutes then add the zest and juice and mix for 3 more minutes. The mixture will turn very thick and hot {fun chemical reactions}.

Pour the filling into the crust base and reserve a tiny portion {about 4-5 tbs}. Here you are adding in the cherries and blend it well.

Pour irregularly on top of the Lime filling and then with a toothpick make swirly shapes, like 8 until you create enough swirls.

Then put it in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

Let it cool then chill for at least 3 hours or overnight {it’s even better}.

Decorate with Meringue, and sprinkle it.DSC_6150

Note: Here where I live eggs for some reason have an intense color that actually affects the final color of food. In this case, my filling ends up really yellowish but it’s only because of the egg yolks.DSC_6161

Serve and enjoy!

    I’m going to save the recipe. Although it’s kind of hard to get lime here, I thing with lemons it should be very tasty as well.
