Mom’s Easy Pie Crust Recipe & Yummy Lime Pie


Dear friends,

No, this is not my mom’s recipe πŸ˜† but I thought this would grab your attention as everyone loves their mom’s cooking, right? I give all credits of this recipe and video to Chef John’s mom, Pauline. Chef John writes for the food section on and he has his own free video recipe blog, which I have listed down for your easy reference in my Blogroll on the right sidebar of this page. πŸ˜‰

Yesterday, the weather in KL was a real scorcher and it was so terribly hot that we were drinking cold teas and eating lots of fruits to cool down. Because I had stocked up on a lot of baking supplies, I was looking for some really easy and interesting baking recipes….and I found this fantastic Key Lime Pie recipe, complete with a detailed video. I really thank Chef John for starting his video blog and teaching us how to cook or bake like a real Chef! πŸ˜†

Here is the video for Pauline’s Key Lime Pie (we can substitute key limes with regular limes) –
