All my recipes could be better. For Mixers' Club's "a season for new beginnings," theme back in January, I went all the way back to the beginning and tried make an improved version of my very first recipe to post on ATF, a ridiculously over-complicated attempt to make a key lime custard bar with almond-coconut-graham crust that used 13 ingredients. Embarrassing. Here's the same profile tasting even better with just five ingredients. The first several attempts to drag that recipe four years into the future weren't quite right, but after months of very intermittent tinkering finally hit upon a combination I found delightful.
Named after the way I've spend a few too many New Years.
Mixers club: March 2020. The ice cream man @eyemakepizza is about to be a father. To toast this, I've mixed a green "milk".
It's a monster alright? Neither a blue or a pink recipe. The pun wrote itself (okay, that's a lie. @nowar wrote it), and the cream base is ripped right out of DAAPled pears.
TFA honeydew is delightful if a bit pervasive, it's almost hard to keep this fruit down to a manageable level to let anything else shine through.
TFA key lime is basically candy lime, green jello type flavor. Distinctly green but different enough that it sweetens the mix and stands outside of the shadow of the honeydew.
FA Aurora is sharp, like lime zest sharp. In this instance something that can really make itself known and fight that bully honeydew to a stalemate was necessary. It was important for the sake of contrast to find something that would stand side by side with the honeydew without clashing.
Special shout out to @rainbowdragon for helping with the art(okay, that's selling her efforts short, she did all the work) in this month's series of MC recipes
This is THE best key lime pie recipe you will ever have. It has everything from the perfect lime, cheesy, custardy filling, to the perfect graham crust. Not too heavy on the lime, added some Greek yogurt for the sour notes and the Bavarian cream really ties the filling and the crust all together but you can taste each profile separately.
