Key West Key Lime Pie Cookbook Winner

2014-07-10_09-10-15_608

I recently won a giveaway of The Key West Key Lime Pie Cookbook by David L. Sloan from Curly Girl Kitchen.  The cookbook features Curly Girl Kitchen blogger Heather’s photo of key lime tartlets.  How cool is that?  If you haven’t checked out her blog, you must.  Her photos are gorgeous and her recipes are beyond tempting.  I mean, don’t you just drool over this blueberries and cream cake?  Congratulations, Heather, for having your photographic talent recognized in this lovely cookbook!

Having lived in Florida, I’m a big fan of all things key lime.  So I’m very excited about this cookbook.  The cookbook has a lot of history on key lime pie, including news clippings of different recipes.  The book focuses on four components of a pie:  crust, filling, sauce and topping.  For each category, it gives you many variations, including traditional graham cracker crust or Papa’s pretzel crust (named so for Key West resident Ernest Hemingway), mango tango filling to makin’ bacon filling, Caribbean coconut sauce to Cuban coffee sauce and agave cream topping to saffron meringue topping.  You can mix and match the components to come up with your favorite version of key lime pie.  How fun!
