Key Lamb Pie. It's like Key Lime Pie, but with lamb on top. (Never to be confused with Shepherd's Pie.)
We had friends over for dinner, the same ones who went to Wales for the lambing with me, and I served Key Lamb Pie for dessert. That's Key Lime Pie with a white chocolate lamb on top. It's more Welsh than the other kind. Their daughters loved it, almost as much as they loved feeding reconstituted sheeps' milk to the real lambs.
I've made it before, back when it was called Key Lime Pie, but of course I don't have any key limes, which are best found in Florida. Although speaking of Earnest Hemingway...have I told you about the time I saw his butt? (I've been dying to work that into the conversation!) At a photo exhibit last week by a photo editor for Life during the war, we saw a slide of Earnest when he'd come over to London to hang out with his journo buddies. On the way home he was in an accident and ended up in hospital. Someone got a picture of Earnest wearing a hospital gown. Yep. So I've seen Earnest Hemingway's butt and you haven't.
Here, have some pie.
Key Lime Pie
14 ounces firm silken tofu, drained and patted dry
8 ounces soy cream cheese
1/3 - 1/2 cup lime juice
2 teaspoons grated lime rind, from organic unwaxed limes
2 packages vanilla pudding mix
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 prepared 9-inch graham cracker pie crust
non-dairy whipped topping
Optional: White chocolate lambs
Blend tofu in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add the cream cheese and blend again until smooth. Add lime juice, 1 teaspoon lime rind, pudding mix and syrup and blend again. Taste, and if it's not sweet enough, add more syrup. It it's too sweet, add more lime juice. Pour the mixture into the crust and chill 2 hours or until firm. Spread whipped topping over the top and garnish with the reserved lime rind. Add white chocolate lambs for a decorative Welsh touch.
Notes on ingredients: I use Mori-Nu Mates vanilla pudding mix, which doesn't contain any nasty ingredients. It's available at HFSs in the states. Silken tofu is the kind in the aseptic package that's found on the Asian food aisle of your supermarket. Soy cream cheese is available at any health food store except possibly Whole Foods.
