Way Back Wednesday….my favorite Key Lime Pie…

First off I want to say if you haven’t voted PLEASE do. You can help keep this blog running by never even having to donate a $1 to me. You are always saying you want to, so please go vote for my farm. I believe you are allowed to vote every day. So if you can tell everyone you know to help!!!

This is my favorite version of Key Lime Pie. It’s called camping pie because of the original post. The mascarpone really does add extra creaminess to an already creamy pie!

Did I mention VOTE!!!!

Peabody’s Camping Key Lime Pie with Coconut-Pecan Graham Cracker Crust

1/2 cup key lime juice, fresh if possible
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup Mascarpone cheese, room temperature
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 to 2 teaspoons finely grated lime or key lime zest, divided
5 egg yolks
whipped cream, for garnish
1 coconut-pecan graham cracker pie shell(recipe follows)

Whisk sweetened condensed milk with the egg yolks. Whisk in Mascarpone cheese. Stir in whipping cream and lime juice. Stir in 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest. Pour into a prepared graham cracker crust and bake at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes.

Coconut-Pecan Graham Cracker Crust

1 ¾ cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup pecans
7-8 TBSP melted butter

In a food processor, blend together graham cracker crumbs, coconut, sugar and pecans. You want to make sure that none of the coconut is visible. Add about 7 TBSP melted butter. Pulse a few times. If it seems like it needs more butter add the remaining TBSP. Pour contents into a pie pan and press to form a shell. I used 4 mini pie shells.
Bake crust for 10 minutes at 400F. If you are using the mini pie pans, prebaking is not necessary.

I served my pie with whipped cream, a little leftover lime zest and plated with some of Fran’s Raspberry Sauce.

  1. My dad absolutely loves Key Lime Pie, so of course your recipe is bookmarked :)

  2. Mmm key lime pie looks wonderful. Your garden is too cute btw!

    1) Just voted for the 3rd day in a row! Woohoo!

    2) So excited about this recipe. I think this will be my husband’s “Welcome Home” dessert when he gets back from his Navy stint. Thanks!

  4. Key lime pie is one of my brother’s favourites and it’s on my list of “to-dos.” It’s sometimes difficult to find key limes up here though, and I can never seem to find the juice either… it’s like my search for malted milk powder all over again :).
    In case anyone is unsure, you can definitely vote once a day, and I’m really hoping you win by an epic margin :).

  5. Your garden is awesome!

  6. Mmmm, that pie looks totally fantastic, yum!

    Voted for your garden! :)

    Voted….!!! I hope u win…:)

  8. I voted (again).

    That pie looks delicious. I love key lime pie, but have never made one. I’m more of a cake and cookie type baker, but my weakness for pies like key lime, chocolate cream, and banana cream will eventually lead me to baking a pie.

    This might just have to be my first…

  9. This looks great! You have my vote!

  10. YES! I was finally able to place my vote! Good luck Peabody :)

    Nice looking Key Lime Pie by the way.

  11. You have my vote too. I left the tab open to remind me to vote again tomorrow.

  12. I voted! …and I seriously want some pie. =D

  13. This looks delicious! I used to live in Augusta Ga. and it was the first place I ever had key lime pie, it’s where I learned to love it! Thanks for bringing back good memories!

  14. I voted again. I have never seen a key lime pie recipe like this it sounds amazing.

  15. If only I could plunge a fork into my computer screen – I’d eat that whole pie.
