Put The Lime In The Coconut

piece The combination of rich coconut and bright citrus-y lime is undeniable and one of my favorites! And it couldn’t be simpler than here in this “impossibly easy pie!”

It is not my first time making this pie – in fact if you have been reading along you might have seen this same pie (really more of a custard) without the lime and decked out for the holidays in a berry sauce.

But this time around I was craving lime (Thanks Lydia for that!) and I had all the ingredients on hand to make this.

The original recipe can be found here and the only change I made was to omit the vanilla and mix in 3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice along with the zest of two limes. (1 in the mix and 1 on top to garnish)

It definitely cured the craving, but the lime is subtle – it you want more lime flavor you have to change the alchemy of recipe – something I am not good with. But feel free to report back with new ratios!

Trust me this won't hang around the house very long!
