Key Lime Bars
While everyone has pumpkin and cranberry flavors on their mind, I have been thinking of these. The recipe intrigued me because the crust uses animal crackers and one of my favorite ingredients, key limes. Key limes or Mexican limes/West Indian limes are very different from the Persian limes that we are accustomed to in this country. True key limes are very small, and yellowish green and they pack a mean, tangy punch as opposed to their big, green counterpart. My sister, the Floridian has educated me on all things key lime. They are only in season in Florida a few months during summer,but you can still find them year round. They really are worth the effort if you don't mind zesting and jucing the little things. My mouth is already starting to pucker just thinking of them.
