Call Me Custard

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

I woke up and early on Saturday and decided that I no longer liked the menu I had built weeks ago for the dinner tonight.

I partly relied on my new-found obsession with Bon Appetit magazine to select new items for my menu. Last night, Talal and I had a delicious Key Lime Pie. It still made my mouth water just thinking of it. That's why, when I saw this Lime Custard, I knew I had to make it. I almost completely followed the recipe. I nixed the lychee and added half of a vanilla bean to the cream and sugar mixture.

  • 2 limes, zest removed in wide strips

  • Pinch of kosher salt

  • ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided

  • ⅓ cup fresh lime juice

  • ½ vanilla bean

In honor of the key lime pie, I decided to make this a deconstructed pie. I crumbled up graham crackers and shaved white chocolate for the top of the custard. The final product was "heavenly." Ohaila's words, not mine.
