Key Limes vs. Regular Limes

This very famous pie is called a key lime pie but the truth is, you can use regular limes to make it.  Do what’s the difference?  Key limes are smaller and have more seeds than traditional limes.  Regular limes have a thicker, greener skin while key limes are thinner and have a yellow tint.  A traditional key lime uses about a 1/2 cup of key lime juice or about 8 limes.  This easy key lime pie copycat recipe calls for less.

Pappadeaux Key Lime Pie with Raspberry Sauce

This delicious Pappadeaux key lime pie with raspberry sauce recipe comes from Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen, a restaurant found mostly in Texas.  But you will find a few pop-up in other cities.  This dessert recipe is a classic found in all of their restaurants.

Here’s what you need for the filling:

  • Cream Cheese
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Cold Water
  • Egg Yolks
  • Salt
  • Flour
  • Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice
  • Key Lime Juice
  • Lime Zest

Start by combining the cream cheese and condensed milk with a hand mixer.  In a saucepan, whisk egg yolks with water.  Add salt and flour and continue to whisk until the flour is fully incorporated.  Add the lime zest and all of the lime juice.  Stir constantly until the liquid forms a pudding-like thickness.  Add the cream cheese and milk mixture and continue to whisk until fully incorporated.

Graham Cracker Crust

Pappadeaux graham cracker crust is also very well-known.  This is made with graham crackers, pecans, melted butter, sugar and cinnamon.  After all the ingredients are mixed together and added to pie pan, bake for 7-10 minutes.  Let cool.  Add the filling and chill for several hours before serving with the raspberry sauce.

Notes

  • When mixing the filling together, you can also use a double boiler to keep it from burning.  When using a double boiler method, place a heat-resistant bowl over boiling water and heat everything in the bowl.
  • As mentioned above, you can use regular limes for this recipe if you don’t have key limes.
  • Keep this pie in the refrigerator when not devouring it!
