Glenda Facemire is the head make-up artist for Austin City Limits, which is an award-winning national music series from PBS. Her upbeat nature and friendly demeanor wins the hearts of the artists who spend time in her chair before a taping.

She says they talk about all kinds of things, including food, which gave her the idea for a cookbook featuring the artists’ recipes. Her idea was anything but half-baked, and she’s cooked up some fun in the pages of Music in the Kitchen: Favorite Recipes from Austin City Limits Performers, published by UT Press.

She even shares a recipe of her own in the book.

My Favorite Key Lime Pie

I always loved preparing a Florida Key lime pie for any occasion, even for the holidays. This is one of the recipes I learned while living in Miami Beach, Florida. It’s so simple to prepare and so delicious to eat. I promise you, you will receive many compliments.

This recipe come from Music in the Kitchen: Favorite Recipes from Austin City Limits Performers, by Glenda Facemire, published by UT Press.

Ingredients

  • 4 free-range eggs, separated
  • 1 can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 c. lime juice
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 store-bought graham-cracker pie crust
  • 1 small carton of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 lime, thinly sliced
  • Crushed almonds (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250°.
  2. Beat egg yolks in a medium bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually add condensed milk, lime juice, and dash of salt to egg yolks. Mix until blended. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with an electric beater until they form soft peaks.
  4. Fold egg whites into egg yolk mixture and stir until smooth.
  5. Pour mixture into pie shell and even out.
  6. Place pie in oven for 15 minutes to set pie.
  7. Cool on rack. Refrigerate for a few hours.
  8. With an electric beater, whip your heavy whipping cream until it thickens and forms peaks.
  9. Top pie with whipped cream and arrange a few lime slices on top for decoration—be an artist!
  10. A very light sprinkling of crushed toasted almonds does no harm.

Serve cold.

And I’ll be right over.
