For the Lime Curd

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 whole large eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed limie juice
  • zest of 1 large or 2 small limes
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 4 Tbs unsalted butter

For the Tropical Trifles

  • Lime Curd
  • 1 EDWARDS® Triple Coconut Crème Pie thawed
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 2 cups pineapple tidbits drained
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut lightly toasted


  • For the Lime Curd, put all the ingredients for the curd except the butter in a medium sauce pan. Turn burner to medium-high heat, and heat, stirring constantly, for ~5min until mixture thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat, and whisk in the bitter, 1 tablespoon at a time. Put in the fridge to set overnight. Alternatively, put in the freezer 20 minutes, stir, then let set in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • To assemble the desserts, using a melon baller or small ice cream scoop, scoop 4-5 balls of EDWARDS® Triple Coconut Crème Pie into 8 mason jars. Layer a good sprinkling of Lime Curd, macadamia nuts, and pineapple. Repeat. Top off with the toasted coconut. Yields 8 servings.
