Here in Florida, we are blessed with fresh seasonal produce. As the seasons change and new fruits and vegetables become readily available, we are able to adjust our menus to savor the sweet flavors of Florida produce. Fresh blueberries are currently in season, and there is one recipe from Fresh From Florida in particular that I can’t wait to serve.
Graham Cracker Crust
- 1½ cup finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 3 Tablespoons Florida sugar
Key Lime Pie Filling

Key Lime Pie Filling Preparation
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
