Slice of Summer - Chef Stacy's Mojito Pie

There's nothing better than the refreshing taste of lime on a summer day. Our Pies & Tarts class at Mirepoix this evening featured delicious scratch-made pies and tarts perfect for the season. On a whim, I decided to try a take on traditional key lime. I love the flavors found in a tall icy Mojito and decided to put them into a pie.


Pretzle Crust
2 1/4 c. pretzels
4 tbsp. brown sugar or white sugar
1 1/2 sticks melted butter
Combine all in food processor until it will hold together. Press into the bottom of a tart or pie pan. Bake at 350 until golden brown.

Mojito Filling
¼ c. lime zest
Finely chopped mint, to taste
1 Tb. rum, or to taste
1(14oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
½ c. Key Lime juice
5 Egg yolks

Mix all ingredients together and adjust flavorings.
Pour into pre-baked pretzel crust
Bake at 325 until set.
Top with sweetened whipped cream
