The Lime Pie Recipe


Over the past 5+ years this has by far been the favorite of all of the postres that we serve. Below is the original recipe that I wrote, and it calls for Lemons, but the fruit can be changed. I know it sounds wacky, but what about… limes! or sour oranges or even substituted with a simple syrup made with flor de jamaica!


Lemon Pie

makes ½ sheet pan

1 lb.                                         Ginger Snaps

¼ lb.                                        Butter

¾ cup                                      Corn Starch

¾ cup                                      Lemon Juice

8                                              Egg Yolks

2                                              Whole Eggs

4 lb.                                         Sour Cream

2 lb.                                         Cream Cheese

2 cup                                       Sugar

4 Tbs                                       Lemon Zest

combine ginger snaps and butter in food processor, pulse until combined. press into pie pan. bake for 10 min at 375f to set.

combine lemon juice and corn starch to make slurry. Combine yolks, eggs, sour cream, sugar, and zest. Combine slurry with lemon mixture. Whisk over low flame on a double boiler until it thickens. About 25 min. pour into shell. cool. Serve with whipped cream and some zest as garnish.
