Key Lime Pie


THE RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

For the crust:

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup crushed graham crackers

For the filling:

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup key lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • Whipped topping to garnish



INSTRUCTIONS

For the crust:

  • Melt butter, add sugar and then add crushed crackers.
  • Spread evenly into 9" pie plate and press onto bottom and sides to form an even crust.
  • Chill for an hour until firm OR bake at 375-degrees for 5 min and allow to cool before filling.

For the filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees. 
  2. With electric mixer beat the egg yolks until they are thick and turn to a light yellow (it takes a while, just keep beating). 
  3. Slowly add sweetened condensed milk while mixing on a low speed. 
  4. Zest 1 lime, then juice it. Pour the fresh lime juice into a 1/2 cup measuring cup then fill the cup with the Key Lime juice to make a full 1/2 cup of juice. (I like the Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice.) 
  5. Gradually add the lime juice and zest and continue to mix on a low speed just until blended.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell and bake 15 minutes. Remove and let cool. 
  7. Serve with a garnish of whipped topping and a small slice of lime if desired.
