Lime Cream and Strawberry Pie

Lime Cream and Strawberry Pie

Last week’s baking project recipe got me in the mood for pie. Lime Cream and Strawberry Pie to be more specific. This one’s like a key lime pie with strawberries.

This recipe comes from a cookbook called Icebox Pies by Lauren Chattman and available on Amazon.com

Start by making a Vanilla Wafer Crust. Add butter, vanilla and a little salt to crushed wafers. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake.

You’ll need the zest of 1 lime and 1/2 cup of juice (about 4 limes).

1 lime renders about 1 tablespoon of zest. Isn’t it pretty! It smells so good too!
