Hi Friends,

Looking for a way to bring a taste of spring inside? Try this delectable Key lime tree for a countertop orchard of your own. Use your freshly harvested limes as a cocktail garnish or for a delicious, homemade Key lime pie. To get you started, Oxmoor House has been kind enough to share their delicious Key Lime Pie Recipe below:


Yield: Makes 1 (9-inch) pie

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 (14-ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup fresh Key lime juice*
2 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • Combine first 3 ingredients. Press into a 9-inch pieplate.
  • Bake piecrust at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned; cool.
  • Stir together sweetened condensed milk and lime juice until blended. Pour into prepared crust. Set aside.
  • Beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed with an electric mixer just until foamy.
  • Add granulated sugar gradually, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until soft peaks form and sugar dissolves (2 to 4 minutes).
  • Spread meringue over filling.
  • Bake at 325° for 25 to 28 minutes. Chill 8 hours.
  • *Bottled Key lime juice may be substituted for fresh juice.
