  • Summary

    The spirit of a Key lime pie in the guise of a luscious cranberry curd. The contrast between the snappy press-in crust and the tart filling in this recipe is pure genius.

    • 1 cup pecans
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
    • 1 (12-ounce) package fresh (or frozen, thawed) cranberries, plus 4 ounces (about 1 1/4 cups) for serving
    • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided
    • 3 large eggs
    • 2 large egg yolks
    • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest, divided
    • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
    • Pinch of kosher salt
    • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into pieces
