Lime Cream Pie

Lime Cream Pie

As a citrus fan, key lime pies make a regular appearance in my kitchen any time I have limes on hand. Key limes are a little more acidic than regular limes (Persian limes) and, while the pie can be made with regular limes, the key limes give it a uniquely bright flavor that makes the pie such a standout. This Lime Cream Pie is a ... Read More »

Strawberry Swirled Lime Muffins

Strawberry Swirled Lime Muffins

I often serve muffins with a bit of butter, cream cheese or jam on the side, depending on what type of muffin I’m serving. While I love a good muffin by itself, muffins simply pair well with a wide variety of spreads and I like to take advantage of that. These Strawberry Swirled Lime Muffins, however, don’t need any accompaniments because they have a swirl ... Read More »

Sour Cream Lime Bars

The Best Sour Cream Lime Bars

During citrus season, I will fill my kitchen up with a wide variety of orange, lemon and lime baked goods, from muffins to pies. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite citrus because I like them all, but lately I have been doing even more baking with limes than usual. Limes find their way into Key Lime Pies more often than they do into ... Read More »

Three Ingredient Lime Sorbet

Homemade Lime Sorbet

Sorbet is a wonderful dessert to make when you want something that is light, but still has lots of flavor. While a scoop of ice crema is still a welcome treat on a hot day, it just won’t refresh you the same way that a fruity sorbet will.

These Layered Coconut and Lime Bars are a little outside of the box when compared to many other bars that are made using the same flavors because they have a meringue-like layer of coconut on ...

Lime Bars

Lime Bars with Confectioners' Sugar

I bake lemon bars all the time, both because I love them and because my friends and family love them. Lemons are probably the first fruit that you think of when you think of this type of shortbread + custard bar, but they’re not the only citrus fruit that can be used to make this type of dessert. Limes, for instance, are a great option ... Read More »

Vanilla and Lime Marble Cupcakes

Vanilla and Lime Marble Cupcakes

When citrus is in season, I do a lot of baking with lemons, but lemons aren’t the only citrus out there and I think limes don’t get used as much as they could be. Limes have a bold, tart flavor to them that makes them a lot of fun to bake with, because even a small amount of lime can have a noticeable impact on ... Read More »

Lime and Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies

Lime and Cranberry Thumbprints

Tart and tangy cranberries are often pared with oranges and orange juice, but cranberries actually go very well with all kinds of citrus. I like cranberries with lemon in cakes and quickbreads, for instance, and lime might be an even better match for them. Limes have a bold, tart flavor that is similar to that of cranberries, and as long as you balance the sugar ... Read More »
