Sous Vide Key Lime Pie


Our spin on key lime pie is extra creamy by steaming them in Mason jars using our Sous Vide Combi-Steam program. Tangy and citrusy lime flavor is a delicious treat in summer or any time of year you need a tropical pick me up.

16 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
3 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
