Introducing This Summer's Hottest New Dessert Sensation!
Meghan stopped by the Random Pixels World News Headquarters this weekend and dropped off a slice of her soon-to-be-famous "Secret Recipe Key Lime Pie."
I'd heard she'd baked up a batch of five of these beauties for Daniel Serfer's Blue Collar Restaurant. When those ran out, she baked five more.
And while Key lime pie is my favorite dessert, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get down to Blue Collar in time. So Meghan offered to bring me a slice. (Is this a great country, or what?)
You can get Key lime pie just about anywhere in South Florida. But not like this.
So what makes Meghan's so special?
Well, for starters, the recipe is one her mother passed down to her. A recipe that calls for real, fresh-squeezed Key lime juice. No bottled stuff in this pie.
And that gives this dessert a creamy, semi-sweet tartness that's pretty damn close to perfect.
I called the Blue Collar this afternoon and asked Daniel if he had any pie left. Nope. All gone. But he told me he'd be calling Meghan for more.
So, if you'd like a slice of Miami's best homemade Key lime pie, hit up the Blue Collar on Twitter or Facebook and ask when they expect to get in that new batch of pies.
You'll be glad you did.
