I made this for a practical. A nice balance between sweet and tart. Be patient with squeezing limes. I recommend listening to the band Mount Righteous while baking :) Hope you enjoy!

Directions

  1. Short Dough:.
  2. Cream butter. Add sugar, honey, and salt until uniform. Add eggs one at a time until completely mixed. Add the flour -- Do NOT over mix. Roll out and then chill 3-4 hours covered. Make sure it is chilled so it is easy to handle.
  3. Bake dough at 350 for 15 minutes.
  4. Key lime filling:.
  5. Fold sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, key lime juice, lime zest, egg yolk, and honey.
  6. Pour filling into pre-baked crust. Bake for about 8 minutes. I like to top with a whipped cream and tuile cookie for decoration. Martha Stewart has an awesome tuile cookie recipe.
