Key lime pie in Bern?

Hi folks,

we are new to Bern (work here, we still live in Aargau and commute every day). How here's the issue: I have that great desire for a good piece of key lime pie. Any idea where this can be found around Bern? Or does anybody have a family recipe and would share it with me?

Thanks galore in advance :-)

Re: Key lime pie in Bern?

I sure do!

The beauty of this recipe is that it doesn't require baking and gets better with age - ie it is still good for days and can be prepared 24 hours ahead of a meal.

- 375g crushed digestive biscuits (I have also used ginger biscuits such as Belgian Speculoos which work marvelously)
- 150g butter
- juice of 6-8 limes (depending on how tangy/limey you want it and how juicy the limes are) and a bit of grated zest
- 1 pint double cream
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk (about 400ml)

Melt the butter and stir in the crushed biscuits. Press into the base of a 20cm removable bottom pan. Chill whilst preparing the filling.

Squeeze the lime juice into a separate bowl, add the cream and condensed milk. Whisk by hand for 2 minutes. Add the lime zest and lightly stir. Pour into the prepared biscuit base. Place onto a tray and chill for 1-2 hours.

about 1,000,000 calories per serving but YUM!

Re: Key lime pie in Bern?

Mine is pretty similar to previous one

1 package of vanilla cookies (Simple ones)
150 gr of butter melted
3 eggs
1 can of condensed milk
3 lemons (limes)

Crumb the cookies and mix with melted butter to form the crust and put in the oven at 200 C for 10 minutes. Then mix the egg yolks, condensed milk and the juice of three limes (if you want you can add some zest to the crust) , mix well, pour into crust and into the oven for 5 minutes, then beat egg whites until stiff and put on top and into the oven for 8 minutes.
