Pie for Breakfast: KEY LIME PIE!

In Baking, Dessert, Main meals, Pastry, Pie on October 31, 2011 at 3:46 am

In order to celebrate the end of lectures, we decided to have a pie breakfast. I’d been wanting to try key lime pie for a while, so I seized this opportunity to give it a try.

Unfortunately, because of the nature of it being a ‘pie breakfast’ the lighting for the photos wasn’t great, and I was too tired to take process photos like I had intended. Next pie post will most definitely have process photos! Especially with regards to the pastry process – as I insist on making pastry by hand, none of the store bought pastry for me!

Visually, the pie was not the most beautiful pie I’ve made, but it tasted delicious and had a beautiful texture…though was very rich! Furthermore, the recipe called for a bigger pie dish than the one I usually use but was too small for my other one which is enormous. So because the pie was somewhat meringue-ish, I decided to turn the rest of the pie filling into a souffle!

Finally, I didn’t get any photos of it served with cream, but that is most certainly how I ate it 🙂 Next time I make pie, I might try and serve it with homemade ice cream as well…

Mmmmmmmmm...all that is missing is the cream!

This might be my last post until my exam is over….I really need to stop focusing on food and focus more on studying! However, once exams are over, I imagine I shall be back to cooking extravagantly much more frequently.
