This week's Culinary SOS: Heilman's Key lime pie
This week's Culinary SOS comes to us from Tina Nelissen in Anaheim:
Bob Heilman's Beachcomber Restaurant in Clearwater Beach, Fla., has the most exquisite Key lime pie I have ever eaten. It isn't heavy — it is light but not airy like a mousse. The crust was not soggy on the bottom — almost like it was just made. Do you think they'd share the recipe?
Heilman's was happy to share its recipe for this classic pie. With just a few ingredients (egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, fresh Key lime juice and zest), the pie can be made in minutes. Just be sure to give it plenty of time to chill, then top as desired and serve to friends.
If you have a favorite restaurant recipe you'd like to request, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll do my best to track it down!
