SHIRLEY'S LIME AND SOUR CREAM PIE
3/4 C of sugar 2 T cornstarch (or potato starch)
freshly grated peel of 2 limes, about 2.5 teaspoons
1/3 C of fresh lime juice
1 C half and half
1/4 C unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 C sour cream
1 baked 9" pie shell or a graham cracker crumb shell
Topping: 1 C whipping cream 1 to 2 T sugar (this is optional as far as I'm concerned)
Combine the 3/4 C of sugar with the corn starch and lime peel in a saucepan.
Add lime juice and stir until smooth. Blend in the half & half and the butter.
Place over medium heat and stir until it starts to boil. (10 to 12 minutes)
Remove from Heat and cool.
Stir occasionally. When cool, fold in sour cream.
Pour into the pie shell and chill.
Pour whipping cream in a bowl with the
sugar (or no sugar) and whiop up into soft peaks.
Spread on top of pie and serve.
Don't be afraid of the calories, don't count them.
Enjoy a little piece of pie once in awhile.
Invite some friends in to eat this with you.
