Kaila Pinned It, Did It!

Kaila and I love to pin food on Pinterest ... her mostly dessert ... me mostly savory foods. But she is way better at actually trying out the recipes she pins. This is not her first attempt (more like her third or fourth). But this is the first time I got pictures of the process.

To make this delicious Key Lime Cheesecake with Pretzel Crust, she took out all the ingredients. Sometimes if she has questions she will ask dad, the other cook in the house.

First step was to blend the lime juice, lime zest and cream cheese. She likes to bake so much we got her an electric mixer for Christmas. No one needed one in our house before this. 

The pie part of this done! And it's no bake cheesecake. I tested it at this point and think it would be a great dessert dip too.

Then out comes the magic bullet to grind some pretzels. I like the idea of a salty crust much better than a sweet one.

And this is what it's supposed to look like mom.

Add the butter and the crust is ready for assembly. This recipe calls for each serving to be built in a glass rather than made into a pie. So pretty for parties.

But it's not Pinterest worthy until it's garnished. Cut up some limes, add a few sprinkles and a pretzel.

The finished product looks yummy!
