RECIPE: Old Key Lime House Classic Key Lime Pie

Recipe Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Pairing almost too perfectly with our book club’s current read, Chanel Cleeton’s The Last Train to Key West, is this Key Lime Pie recipe from the Old Key Lime House in Palm Beach County. A winner of many “best pie” awards, this particular version of the traditional South Florida dessert might just take the cake.

Enjoy with a tropical- but-not-too-sweet after-dinner drink, or for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee. However you decide to indulge, this sweet treat will be undoubtedly delicious.
