Key lime pie

Mmmmmm... My Mama and I attempted a key lime pie for the first time ever. This was my first time making a pie and my Mama hasn't had very much experience with this so it was kind of just a free for all. We loosely followed the recipe found here, but we messed up some of the steps and this may have been the cause of our issues with this pie.

We didn't have the total amount of graham crackers needed for the crust so we just used about 1/2 a pound of graham crackers and thus used a little less melted butter as well. This worked well for the size of pan we were using, which must have been smaller than the one used for the original recipe.

Once we baked the crust (which didn't actually hold together...) we poured in the key-limey goodness which also didn't really stay together when baked. We did add the ingredients in the wrong order though...

Basically we made really delicious granola and covered it with really delicious pudding.

In the end we just decorated it nicely, scooped it out of the pan and enjoyed it for the taste, not the texture (which was fine if you just pretended you made pudding on top of granola).

We also filled little ramicans with a layer of the crust and a layer of the key lime mixture.

In the future I think we will try other recipes and maybe try this one again, since we are clearly pie novices!
