Key Lime Pie

So, I know you all are wondering what the surprise dessert was that we made for Jason for his birthday: It was a Key Lime Pie.

Piper "helped" me make it by adding about half of a bottle of green food coloring. That explains the color. It actually looks a lot like the playdough we made about a month ago. Speaking of is the recipe we use (we got it from Lab School):

Cooked Playdough

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 tbs. oil
1 tsp. food coloring

Combine flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a saucepan. Mix liquids and gradually stir them into dry ingredients. When mixture is smooth, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until ball forms. Remove from heat and knead until solid and not sticky anymore. Cool and keep in airtight container.

By the way, Jason said the pie was good...although he often lies to me about stuff like that so he won't hurt my feelings...what a guy!
