Top off your summer barbecue event with a silky and tart lime pie
Finish off a barbecue party with this yummy rendition of Key lime pie. This luscious dessert was created in Florida where the special limes grow. They are smaller and more tart than regular Persian limes. If they are unavailable, the juice of any limes can be used.
