My First Lime Pie

My first ever Lime Pie. Not a key lime pie as I can't get Key limes - mine were persian via Brazil to England.

I used Margi's mums recipe but I halved the amount (to fit in my tin) and I didnt put a topping on, I liked it just the way it was. Seen some with toppings and decided against it. I also didnt add any extra sugar as I thought it was sweet enough with the conny onny.

Anyway it tastes divine. Where has this pie been all my life??? So easy to do and its my new favourite.

Smashing!

Gravy Queen: I certainly shall

Gravy Queen,

I certainly shall give her your lovely message ...

She was quite a Baker in her day. Of course, she was born in Basel, Switzerland and is of French Swiss origins. She had given me this hand written huge notebook of all her baked treats ...

I have been translating them, however, my Spanish, Italian and Portuguese are alot better than my Swiss German or French. My younger daughter Nathalia has a Proficiency in German and lives in Zürich so she has been assisting with another thick, hand written notebook of her specialties she served when I was a child.

When, I go over to Puglia for a few weeks, I shall try and knock off some more of her cakes, pies and cookie recips, and post a few of them ...

All my best for a lovely day.
Margi.

That looks marvelous. I agree about not needing extra sugar. As you say, "conny onny" is pretty sweet on its own.

I make a sour cream topping for mine. About a cup of sour cream sweetened to taste. Creamy yes, but not so sweet it makes your teeth ache.

Thank you Dawgluver. My edges are a bit raggedy but thats the hazard of working with gluten free biscuits, my base is gluten free digestives (digestives being our equivalent of graham crackers).
