Catahoula’s Key Lime Pie

This key lime pie is just amazing. It comes from Catahoula’s Restaurant in Louisiana’s Cajun Country. Serve it garnished with lime zest, as they do, above, or over our mango purée, shown below.


3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
6 ounces graham cracker crumbs (15 full crackers)


1 cup Key Lime juice (20 – 40 key limes, depending on size and juiciness)
2-14 ounce cans sweetened condensed milk
2 egg yolks
2 whole eggs
zest of 2 limes

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Press into bottom and sides of a 10 inch pie tin to with fingertips. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Do not let burn. Remove from oven.

Combine filling ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into pie crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until firm.

Remove and let cool. Refrigerate. Serve with dollop of whipped cream and fresh lime zest. Serving plate may be sauced with mango purée.
