I love me a good key lime pie. I’m a huge fan of anything tart or sour, so naturally, key lime pie is one of my all-time favorite desserts.
I’ve made a ton of them over the years but if I’m being honest, they haven’t always been the best. Sure, they’ve tasted good, but never as fresh as I would have liked them to be.
Like I wrote about a few weeks ago, there’s nothing better than eating fresh produce. When things are in season, the flavors are so much more vibrant and idk, things just taste ten times more delicious.
So today I’m sharing a recipe that I found on the Fresh From Florida website – a unique spin on a traditional key lime pie that includes blueberries which happen to be in season right now.
Trust me, you’ll love it.
Graham Cracker Crust
- 1½ cups finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons Florida sugar
- NOTE: If you don’t want to make your own crust, just grab a Keebler’s ready pie crust
Key Lime Pie Filling
- 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 4 large egg yolks
- 1/2 cup fresh squeezed Florida Key lime juice
- 3 teaspoons fresh Key lime zest
Florida Blueberry Topping
- 2 cups Florida blueberries
- 1/2 cup apricot jam
- 1/4 cup water
Step #1: Squeeze Your Key Limes
I didn’t make my own crust, so we’ll get straight to the filling. First things first, get your key lime juice. Cut your key limes in half, take out the seeds and start squeezing away. Really, this is the step that takes the longest.
Step #2: Combine Your Ingredients
Combine the condensed milk, key lime juice, key lime zest, and egg yolks in a mixing bowl. And that, my friends, is your key lime pie filling.
Step #3: Pour the Filling Into Crust + Bake
Pretty self-explanatory, but do make sure that your pie crust is cooled and at least room-temperature if you baked your crust from scratch. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes and let cool before adding your topping.
Step #4: Add Your Blueberries
Once your pie has cooled, it’s time to add some blueberries.
Step #5: Apricot Glaze
You could totally finish your pie with step #4, but to make things even sweeter, brush a little apricot glaze on top. Mix your water and apricot jam in a small saucepan until the jam has melted, and then brush the mixture on top of the blueberries.
The result? Pure deliciousness.
