About this recipe

Here's one of my favorite desserts, the American Key Lime Pie

For those who don't know what "key limes" are : those are small limes that were naturalised in Florida (they originated from SouthEast Asia)

Those little rascals have a very powerful taste, and give this pie a great flavor. If you can't find them, I will tell you how to substitute them with traditional limes
Key Lime Pie

This version was modernized by French Pastry chef Christophe Michalak, and I learned this recipe during a class with him in Paris
Key Lime Pie

So let's make this beauty together. Between the taste and the looks, this pie is a success every time I make it for friends !
