Today's Eat Beat: Heilman's Key lime pie

March 2, 2012 | 12:25 pm

Recently, reader Tina Nelissen contacted us with a Culinary SOS request for Key lime pie:

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?

In this Eat Beat, Test Kitchen manager Noelle Carter demonstrates how to make Heilman's take on this classic dessert. You can find the recipe here.

Catch our televised recipe demonstrations on KTLA-TV (Channel 5) every Wednesday and Friday toward the end of the 1 p.m. news hour; you can also watch the videos on Food's homepage.
