Well, mathematicians are calling it Pi day. You know that number, represented by the cute symbol, that never ends, that they wanted you to memorize in school and then use in math problems. That number that most of us have never used since our days in math class. 3.141592653 blah, blah, blah.
For foodies, Pi Day is just a great reason to make and eat Pie. Pie Day. It works for me.
I made this Key Lime Pound Cake last week. It was delicious. Almost like eating a Key Lime Pie but in cake form. But what to do with the rest of the Key Lime Juice? Duh, make pie of course. You know I’m not a fan of full size pies. I like individual servings of my treats. Part portion control (I’d just slice a full size pie into five slices and be done with it) and it’s just easier to serve, eat, and give away the leftovers.
Key Lime Tartlets are so fast and easy to make, just whip your ingredients together, pour into tart crusts, bake, refrigerate, then a dollop of whip cream and tada! Grab your fork and dig in. People will think you are a genius.
