Let’s Make the Key Lime Pie from Olivia’s Cafe!

There are couple desserts that tempt me following a very good meal like Crucial lime pie. It’s mild and vibrant and packs a punch that I come across quite tricky to say no to. Really don’t get me completely wrong if I’m in the parks in the middle of the afternoon, I’m heading for a sizzling fudge sundae 9 situations out of 10. But, right after a awesome evening meal, if another person indicates Critical lime pie, I’m in.

On my family’s really initially Disney cruise, a single of the ports that we were being slated to visit was Critical West. Now, as a family members who loves a superior snack, please comprehend that acquiring a slice of Essential lime pie was incredibly large on our listing of things to do even though in port. In point, it was the only matter other than going for walks all around and sightseeing that was on our list. We observed a store that offered slices of Key lime pie, and we liked each morsel. And then we found out that frozen, chocolate coated Critical lime pie on a stick WAS AN Precise Matter. Say what?! Needless to say, we produced a beeline for The Blond Giraffe, had the heavenly pie on a adhere covered in chocolate, and headed again to the Disney Magic figuring out that we had performed our owing diligence. It was a incredibly fantastic day.

Today’s Saturday Treats recipe hails from Olivia’s Cafe, the table service cafe at Disney’s Old Important West Vacation resort. Olivia’s is a wonderful place that attributes a inventive menu (check out the pork chop if it is remaining offered whilst you’re there), and it, back again in the day, highlighted Vital lime pie for dessert. These times, their Key lime dessert is a tart that will come with mango and raspberry sauces. The newer dessert is fantastic, but it is not their basic, straight up Critical lime pie.

So, indulge me just a little bit as we turn again the clock and convert back again to the initial recipe for the cafe’s Vital West classic. It was so incredibly superior way back when, and I’m hoping today’s outcomes live up to the primary. The recipe is located in Chef Mickey’s Treasures from the Vault & Delightful New Favorites by Pam Brandon and the Disney Cooks.

The pie does not choose a lot to whip up, and when you’re needing a little something ultra-yummy at the beginning of the weekend, needing just a few ingredients is a fantastic point. If you’re searching down Critical lime juice in the grocery shop, it was identified in the fruit juice aisle in my area retailer. My hubby did the browsing for it, bless his coronary heart.

Let us bounce in. You’ll require 5 egg yolks for the pie, and now’s the great time to go forward and get the yolks divided from the egg whites. Just after you have the yolks in a huge bowl, preheat your oven to 350 levels.

Now gently whisk the egg yolks. I’m not guaranteed that I’ve at any time paid out interest to how gently I’ve whisked a little something just before, but I can surely say that I have now. The recipe asks us to make certain that the yolks don’t foam, so, when bubbles began to form, I backed off.

The subsequent various methods need to be finished even though continually stirring, so make certain that your can of sweetened condensed milk is completely ready to roll, and go in advance and measure out 2/3 of a cup of the Crucial lime juice.

Alrighty, go in advance and pour in that can of sweetened condensed milk. And keep stirring. I experienced under no circumstances tasted condensed milk on its very own prior to, so I trapped a finger in what was remaining in the can. I’m happy that I did, but I’m not sure I’ll be performing that again whenever quickly. Insert not sure, wrinkled nose experience here.

And now, in goes the magic stuff: the Essential lime juice. Just continue to keep stirring. And, though you are stirring, desire up a couple of means that you could use the 50 percent a bottle of Essential lime juice that is left above. Hmmm…I could possibly go with the “make one more pie” solution. It only would make sense.

After everything’s blended, thoroughly pour the mixture into the graham cracker crust. When we’re in this article, can we all admit how amazing pre-created graham cracker crusts are? I have built them from scratch in the earlier, and though they’re mouth watering, the pre-made variety is a-okay in my ebook.

Permit every little thing settle, and location your pie in the oven. In accordance to the recipe, it’ll just take 12-15 minutes or so. I pulled my pie out of the oven just after 12 minutes given that it was great and established.

Put your pie on a rack so that it can awesome down to place temperature, and just dream of that 1st slice for a second. Your tolerance will pay out off. Cling in there, my good friend.

Once the pie reaches place temp, spot it in the fridge to amazing entirely. Do not believe that I did not pull my pie out of the fridge right before it cooled fully just to see if it would pass muster, because you know that I did. And, although I did manage to get a slice out of the pie pan, it wasn’t entirely chilled and congealed, so back again in the pan and back again in the fridge the entire detail went.

Even though I was waiting not-so-patiently for the pie to finish the cooling system, I made the decision to give creating do-it-yourself whipped cream a test. Whilst we had been generating Sanaa’s Naan Bread a few of Saturdays in the past, I informed you about how I like to make handmade butter using a mason jar, heavy whipping cream (liquid gold, in my belief), and sea salt. Very well, it turns out that ahead of the butter is butter, it is whipping cream with out the sugar and vanilla. And sure, when I could make whipped product and butter in my stand mixer applying the whisk attachment, my whisk attachment is very likely hanging out in an unmarked box in my garage with my dough hook attachment. I haven’t seen either in seven decades. And I like my very simple minor mason jar technique, so we’ll adhere with the if it ain’t broke, never deal with it way of undertaking things nowadays. It’s Saturday, and we’re not searching to add one particular ounce of anxiety to our snack making approach, appropriate?

I grabbed my trusty mason jar out of the cupboard, along with some sugar and vanilla extract. I stuffed the jar about 1/3 complete, and dropped in a little bit of sugar and around a 1/2 teaspoon or so of vanilla. Immediately after 5 or 6 minutes of giving the mason jar (with lid tightly affixed) a shake, I experienced contemporary whipped product for my Key lime pie. Yummmm. The whipped cream was good, and I felt super achieved that I in fact did it, but I think I’ll dial up the sweetness even additional upcoming time I make it by tossing in more sugar.

Later on that evening, just when I necessary a tiny something dessert-ish, I returned to the fridge and pulled out the pie that, by that time, was entirely cooled. Shut your eyes for just a instant and photo what the initially bite of a slice of Critical lime pie tastes like. Uh huh, yep. You obtained it, and so does this pie. It has anything that you want from a piece of Critical lime pie: the initial pucker triggered by the tartness of the Critical lime juice, the chilly creaminess many thanks to that can of sweetened condensed milk, and all served up on a slim layer of graham cracker crust. Y’all, this pie is best.

Of class, I grabbed my mason jar filled with homemade whipped cream out of the fridge, far too. I chose a significant spoon from the utensil drawer and placed a generous dollop oh so carefully on best of my piece of pie.

This is a place-on Key lime pie, and my many thanks go out to the cooks at Olivia’s Cafe. For the reason that of them, my Thanksgiving desk will have a new dessert. It’s a little something that can be manufactured in advance of time, and it is a fantastic alternative for these who may possibly not love chocolate-based desserts.

This pie is the perfect storm: it calls for few elements, it is straightforward to make, and the conclusion end result is anything to be savored. Very low on work, significant on fork out off. I’ll make it yet again and love it yet again, and quickly. In actuality, it’s 11am as I create this, and I’m savoring a slice proper now. Ahem.

I hope that your weekend is wonderful and crammed with moments of large-eyed question. And, potentially, filled with a little something delectable, too.
