Awesome Eats: Windowsills Cafe & Marketplace’s Key Lime Pie

Friday, June 7th, 2013


 

We rarely abandon our dedication to chocolate desserts, but for the Key lime pie at Windowsills Cafe & Marketplace, we make an exception. A graham cracker crust serves as the base for the filling of cold custard spiked with tart Key lime juice and a topping of whipped cream clouds sweetened with a splash of vanilla. The refreshing burst of citrus cuts the indulgently rich custard, making a generous slice a sweet end to any summer meal.

{I spent many painful hours in grad school reading works by French philosopher and father of deconstruction Jacques Derrida. Let me tell you, it’s much more enjoyable to eat a deconstructed dessert than to study semiotics. Right now, that would be the Key lime pie at Salt. The sweet, tangy fruit custard sits in a fancy glass garnished with a grilled lime wheel, while a handful of graham cracker sticks are served on the side, ready for dipping. The only signifier I care about is what my hand wave means to the server: I want more pie.}

{I waited 25 long years to try a recipe for popcorn grits that I had torn out of a magazine and tossed into my treasured recipe shoebox. Now that I’ve finally found popcorn grits (from YellowTree Farm), I’m devouring these local, stone-ground popcorn grits with sauteed asparagus and sharp cheddar cheese swirled in for melty pleasure. Grab these silly good grits – they have a distinct orange-yellow tone and are ground slightly larger than traditional grits – at the YellowTree Farm booth at the Schlafly or Tower Grove farmers markets, or taste them on dishes at The Block, Home Wine Kitchen, Half & Half and Little Country Gentleman.}

{The label may be quaint and countrified, but the folks at Windowsills Cafe and Marketplace are big city serious when it comes to making freshly squeezed lemonade. It’s got a touch of orange flower water, for goodness sake! Ditch the Country Time mix and celebrate the lemonade revolution.}
