Spring is almost here and that means Easter is just around the corner. I just love this season! Potlucks, parks, and everything blooming. This “Key Lime Pie” has all the things I love and more. It is perfect for a potluck because you can make it a heat of time and it travels perfect. The flavor is so bright, sweet, and a little tart. It reminds me of spring and fun times; and of course, it is so delicious!

Helpful Tips and Tricks

This pie is very rich and sweet, 1/4 cup of sugar might not seem like a lot but it really goes a long way. I highly encourage you to make the whipped cream yourself, that way you can control de amount of sugar that goes into it.

Make sure the pie is completely cool before you put it in the fridge. If the pay is still warm, the crust will stick to the pan, and you’ll be left with a crustless slice of key lime pie. That happened to a friend once, “ahem”.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
