Well, needless to say, it ended up being a non-event! Apparently most people stayed home, and there was no traffic on the freeways......such a weird thing to see in LA!!
While we were hanging out I decided to try out my new mini-tart pan. I also found a bag of Key Limes on my last trip to Trader Joe's, so I decided how perfect would a tiny little Key Lime Pie be? I love the taste of Key Lime Pie, but after a few bites I'm kind of done.....since the flavor is so intense.
I ended up using the Key Lime recipe from Joy of Baking....I simply divided the crust and the filling into my little mini-tarts.....the recipe made about 15 of them. Key Lime Pies are fairly simple to put together.....make a quick graham cracker crust....an easy to throw together filling.....and after baking simply top with sweetened whipped cream. Use a pastry bag for your whipped cream and you can get a fancy schmancy presentation!
These were the perfect size for me! A couple of bites and you're done! The hubby loved it.....yeah!
Check out Joy of Baking for the recipe......and enjoy!!
Oh, and what were the boys doing to entertain themselves during Carmageddon? Well, they were painting Legos to make custom Star Wars Clone Troopers........yep, I live in a house of guys!!!
