When the Hill Team was visiting Rockland, Main, we visited all of the four Historic Inns of Rockland. While at the LimeRock Inn we met owners, Frank Isganitis and PJ Walter. What a great experience. We will be posting a more in depth feature on the LimeRock Inn.
Frank was gracious enough to prepare his famous Key LimeRock Pie for us. It was as delicious as it sounds. Video Link in case the video screen does not show.
Key LimeRock Pie
1 cup ground vanilla wafers
1/4 cup ground granola (plain)
5 tablespoons butter (melted)
Start by preheating oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, blend together dry ingredients. Pour melted butter over mixture. Use a wooden spoon, gently mix ingredients until wet.
Lightly spray non-stick coating inside of a 9-inch pie pan. Pour mixture into pie pan. First, press the mixture along the sides of the pie pan using a fork. With the fork, press the remaining mixture evenly over the bottom of the pie pan to form a crust. Bake crust for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon key lime zest
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice (fresh preferred)
At full speed using an electric mixer, beat egg yolks and zest for 5 minutes or until mixture has a shiny luster. Slowly pour the condensed milk into the mixture and beat for another 3 minutes or until thickened. Reduce mixer speed to low and add juice just enough to combine and complete the pie filling. Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust and bake for 10 minutes or until the filling is completely set.
After pie has cooled to room temperature, refrigerate for about an hour and serve chilled with creme fraiche or whipped cream and garnish as desired.
