the polar vortex is real. it has been colder in dc the past few weeks than it’s ever been. i like the cold but man this is too cold for anyone’s good. fortunately, it got a little warmer last week. it’s sad when you get excited for 30 degrees.
chris requested that i make a key lime pie which was perfect to combat some of the winter blues. i make key lime pie cupcakes often, but i’ve only made key lime pie once before. i used the recipe my coworker gave me – she made it a while back for the office. it was divine. so i used the same recipe this time.
this pie is super easy and only has few ingredients. wonderful. i also like that it’s not too tart. it has the perfect amount of lime flavor while still being nice and creamy. plus i love graham cracker crust so that is definitely one of my favorite parts of this pie.
