This year, with Stephanie in charge of desserts, we opted for something a little different: Key Lime Pie. We grew up as Georgia Peaches, and according to the The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook, key lime pie on St. Paddy’s is a Savannah tradition.

How many key limes does it take to make a key lime pie? At least a dozen!
The final product, in all its creamy citrus glory!
The icing on the cake was the Freshly Made Whipped Cream. Oh my Irish blessings.
Do you have a St. Patrick’s culinary tradition? Ours is food truck pasties and dessert, lots of beer & Irish whiskey, all after enjoying our city’s famous St. Paddy Parade. And what do the revelers think about that?
