Lime Mousse over Graham Cracker Crumble

posted in: Recipes 0

I remember the first time that I had a really good key lime pie, it was in Charleston, South Carolina, overlooking the ocean. It was smooth and tart, the crust was crust and delicate. It was perfection. I wanted to make something that was super light, and had different textures. This deconstructed version of a key lime pie takes me back to that restaurant.
