If you're a fan of really sour desserts, try this creamy, tangy dessert pie

Love anything maasim? You might just enjoy Lemon Lime Manila’s key lime pie, a tangy, citrus-based homemade dessert.

Lemon Lime’s key lime pie is composed of two simple elements – a crunchy graham cracker crust and a rich, creamy custard made of freshly-squeezed lime juice, topped with caramelized lime slices and lime zest. The pie looks similar to a frozen cheesecake, and is meant to be enjoyed just like one; the tangy custard is almost akin to a refreshing sorbet when frozen. If you prefer it soft and creamy, serve it chilled.

The name says it all: the key ingredient of this pie is fresh lime, and the bright, citrus fruit really shines through. The buttery and sugary graham crust lends some sweetness and crunch to temper the custard’s acidity and creaminess. If you’re a fan of really sour desserts, this is for you!

Lemon Lime Manila sells the zingy 9″ round pie for P1,300, good for 4-6 people. They also have a mini key lime pie box for P760, which includes 4 3″ pies in one.

They’re based in two Quezon City hubs: Green Meadows and Visayas Avenue. To order, you can message Lemon Lime Manila’s Instagram page or text them at 09175809996. – Rappler.com
