In Florida, Key lime pies are always made with local Key lime juice. In 1853, a struggling inventor named Gail Borden created condensed milk, which become popular in places where milk was unavailable -- like Key West. Key lime pie evolved after someone in the area got the idea of making a "custard" with Borden's invention, combining it with key lime juice and putting it all into a pastry crust.

Orange Piggy Says: "...and this is the key lime tart made with my homegrown limes and coconut crust....I used coconut flakes made from grated fresh coconut. It was so fragrant."
