30 by 30 #28 – Bake a pie from scratch

I love to bake though I don't get to do as much as I would like and I had never attempted to make a pie from scratch. It seemed do-able and AJ and I had to bring something to his family's Easter dinner, so I attempted a key lime pie.

The crust I thought would be the hardest part, but it actually wasn't too bad. The meringue went well too, but the actual key lime part was tough.

The pie turned out just okay. AJ's family was kind enough to tell me it was great, but it really wasn't. Edible, but definitely not perfected. The inside was just a bit watery and not quite solid enough. For a first attempt, I think it was okay. I think I'll try another pie for Thanksgiving or Christmas this year.
