Key Lime Pie

I’m usually not a huge fan of key lime pie, but we recently got a bag of locally-grown key limes in our Greenling basket, and I had also made some homemade graham crackers, so I thought I would give it a try. Our friends were still visiting, and their 12-year-old daughter was eager to help make some homemade key lime pie.

The result? It was fantastic! We’ll definitely be making this again when we have some fresh key limes!
