Paula Deen’s Key Lime Pie

My sweet friend from work picked a ton of Mexican Key Limes and brought them to me one morning. It was such a nice surprise and let me tell you how amazing my house smelled when I brought them home!!! MMMM… I love decorating with food, fruit, and natural elements in my home so I placed them in a large vase for a while.

One of my best go-to recipe books is Paula Deen’s. Pretty much a southern cookbook bible 🙂 I had never made her Bubba’s Key Lime Pie, but decided to give it a go. Cameron told me it was better than Village Inn pie, which in his book, is a VERY big deal. I laughed but in all honestly, this pie was really easy to make and delicious.

*Remember that you need to let it set overnight though and you are good to go!
