Key Lime with lemon meringue pie

1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
3 cups sweetened condensed milk (2 cans)
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup key lime juice
2 tablespoon grated lime zest
1/4 cup lemon curd (I use Dickinson’s Lemon Curd)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice, and lime rind. Mix well and pour into graham cracker crust. Swirl in slightly heated curde6a4ea3c-7836-4676-ac35-c148fa12a32d_1.5d5c4fe2d6f18e99828cd1ad45ed6d60

Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of pie. DO NOT BROWN! Remove from oven when complete.

While your pie is baking, mix the following meringue:

4 egg whites
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
pinch salt

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. In separate bowl mix sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add sugar mixture a little at a time to the egg whites, beating between additions.

Spoon the meringue over pie. Bake for Spoon into pie you’ve just removed from oven and lightly sprinkle another tablespoon of sugar because that will give you that caramelized look when you broil it.

Place back in oven and cook for another 5 minutes. Then put it on low broil for last 3-4 minutes for the browning effect.

May be eaten hot, or chilled. I prefer it chilled, especially in the summer.

I recently visited Utah’s newest distillery Dented Brick. They opened March 25 in Salt Lake City. Their master distiller Ethan Miller is a longtime friend and it was wonderful to see him again, he is all grown up!

Named after one of Utah’s most famous landmarks, Dented Brick mashes, ferments, and distills onsite using only the highest quality ingredients – organic sugar cane, non-GMO molasses, aromatic yeast, and chemical free water from an artesian well, drilled by the original property owners. The distillery’s location, in an industrial area of South Salt Lake, was selected because there was a natural artesian well on the property. The fresh spring water “is something that sets us apart,” said Miller, who grew up in West Valley City. He worked at High West Distillery in Park City and New Deal Distillery in Portland, Ore., before local investors Marc Christensen and Celeste Royal lured him back to Utah to launch Dented Brick.

The company’s state-of-the-art facility is one of the few in the country built specifically for distilling. With a 28-foot-tall Vendome copper still from Kentucky, Dented Brick will be able to increase its capacity in the future, eventually reaching 3,000 cases a month. “We can make any spirit we want: vodka, gin or whiskey,” Miller said. Not everything about the 14,000-square-foot facility is new, though. Old bricks — even dented ones — were pulled from the site’s original structure and incorporated into the building, giving inspiration for the distillery’s name.

The business is expanding internationally and I am looking forward to seeing its success.

Dented Brick gives tours which end up in a tasting of the Antelope Island rum.  That’s never a bad thing, particularly with a rum of this caliber.
