Another heavy hitter in the Florida Keys Key lime pie ring is Kermit of Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Shoppe. Kermit serves a traditional Key lime pie with whipped cream, using his own brand of Key lime juice. He also has a recipe for coconut topping that we’re dying to try with his base recipe, which you can find here.


Serving suggestions: Traditionally, Key lime pie is enjoyed plain, with a whipped cream topping, or with a meringue topping. For an interesting variation, drizzle chocolate sauce, mango sauce, and/or raspberry sauce over a slice of Key lime pie. The complementary flavors are sure to please.

Key Lime Pie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
