Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie once was a specialty of the coral islands at the southernmost end of Route One (where tiny Key limes are a native fruit), but has now become an American food icon. The sweet-tart, pale yellow, no-bake pie is a cool dessert in restaurants that range from deluxe steak houses to paper-napkin seafood shacks, and is frequently customized to go beyond pastel custard on a Graham cracker crust. Among interesting iterations are frozen Key lime pie on a stick from street vendors in Miami, deep-fried Key lime pie at state fairs, Key lime milk shakes, and Key lime pie martinis.
