I rarely give 5 stars. I've never made a flan or custard dish like this so I went into it with some trepidation. I kept waiting to see key limes in my grocery store, but never did. So I sent away (on Amazon) for key lime juice. I used the zest of regular limes. It was super easy! But even better, it was super yummy. So refreshing, especially on a warm, summer evening. I would not hesitate to serve this to guests. It might not be the prettiest dessert but who cares when it tastes this good. Be sure to do the honey and graham cracker topping.
I accidentally used a lime that was too old and slightly bitter in this, and even with the bad lime, this was STILL amazing. It tastes and looks like something you might get at a five-star restaurant, but it really isn't that hard to do. Thank you, Cooking Light! For what it's worth, my changes were to use full-fat evaporated milk and Persian limes (they were what I had on hand). I think it would be fine with the specified ingredients too.Read More
