If Life Gives you Limes . . .

I highly suggest you make Ina's Frozen Key Lime Pie.
Limes
There I was left with 10 limes, purchased for Gin & Tonic's at a friend's going away party and wouldn't you know it not a single G & T was consumed. We stuck to cremant and wine all night long. On a side note, did you know the English make G & Ts with lemons?!?! Shock, horror. I decided to bring some limes to the party and create and international incident. Never got the chance, though.
Speculoos
Anyhoo, so I had a bunch of limes. I remembered Ina's recipe and there was born this delicious and easy pie. Instead of graham crackers (which don't exist here) I used Lotus Speculoos. Mmmm, mmmm delicious. Probably better than graham crackers.
Lime Juice
Keep this recipe in mind for summer time. It is so darn easy and would be great after anything cooked on the BBQ.

The English do indeed use lemons. I've not found the adverse to limes, just confused by them.

Those limes reminded me of the yummy margaritas my husband makes. Just equal parts fresh lime, tequila, and orange liquer. Yummers! Can you get speculoos in the US?

likeschocolate - YES! No time for pictures. We had friends visiting from Seattle and the pie got eaten up quickly!

Susan - Not sure if speculoos are available in Seattle. Go to Ballard Market and check! Let me know!!

Well, I was going to say I love lime pie, but I forgot about margaritas before I read ksjj's comment. Tough choice! Seriously though, your pie sounds wonderful!
