As I’ve mentioned before, my mother lives in a mecca of citrus. My favorite thing she grows are these little lemons called Limequats. A limequat is a cross between a lime and a kumquat although it tastes more like a keylime than anything. I brought home a huge bag of them after Christmas and use them like lemons. You can obviously use keylimes if you don’t have access to my mother’s yard.
Mom’s Limequat Pie
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup limequat juice
- 1 graham cracker pie crust
Assembly: Bake the pie crust per the instructions on the box. Combine the rest of the ingredients and heat just enough to kill off any potential bacteria from the eggs. Pour into the pie crust and chill overnight. Top with whipped cream (we stole some from my sister’s chocolate mousse).
