TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

Gov. Rick Scott helped serve what is being called the world's largest Key lime pie Tuesday.

The giant pastry was the featured attraction to commemorate Florida Keys Day at the state Capitol.

Monroe County business and government leaders converged in Tallahassee to bring awareness to the state's southernmost island chain.

The mammoth pie's ingredients include the juice of 5,760 tiny yellow Key limes, 200 pounds of graham crackers and 55 gallons of sweetened condensed milk. It has a diameter of 97 inches, an estimated weight of 1,000 pounds and can be cut into more than 1,000 slices.

Believed to have originated in Key West in the late 1800s, Key lime pie was designated Florida's official pie in 2006 by the state legislature.
