Creamy Lime Pie (Rick Bayless)

11 ingredients

Or Pay de Lim'on comes from Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen. Delicious and not too sweet. I use My Favorite Pie Crust and sealed it with beaten egg yolk right after it comes out of my oven. The timing here does not include the time needed to make and bake the single crust before putting this filling into nor does it include making the creme fraiche or crema mexicana. I used Crema Mexicana. Notice how this pie is baked and not stirred in sauce pan on top of the stove. The original recipe said 4 1/2 teaspoons of lime zest, we thought that was not enough so upped it to 5 teaspoons of lime zest. Am unsure if that is the right amount? It also has orange liqueur in it making it muy bueno! Rick Bayless also suggests serving it with Crimson Prickly Pear Sauce which RZ does not recognize as an ingredient or with a fruit sauce of your choice. Lots of ingredients here should be at room temperature-eggs, crema Mexicana, limes (about 4), and oranges (2?). I have eliminated the masa harina after looking at appleydapply's kind review.
