My girlfriend P from Atlanta, Georgia came over for a nice visit and gave me this fun, easy recipe for Key Lime Pie. This is such an easy recipe that I'm thrilled to share with you. Especially to Marty and Kathryn over in the bay area. The secret ingredient, according to P, was the special key lime juice that you can get at the grocery store. Top it with freshly whipped cream infused with lime zest and you have yourself a delicious treat. Here's a picture of the key lime pie.Here's the recipe she gave me:
Ready-made graham cracker pie crust
1 can 14 oz condensed milk (used fat free)
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup fresh key lime juice
Fresh whipped cream
In a heavy mixer, beat heavy whipping cream with sugar and grated lime til soft peaks or desired consistency.
Set oven at 350. Blend condensed milk, egg yolks, 1/2 cup fresh key lime juice til smooth, and pour into pie crust. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 10 mins. before putting into refrigerator. When ready to serve, top pie with fresh whipped cream and serve. Enjoy!
Note: Since I don't reside in a citrus friendly zone, fresh key limes are a rare find in this land-locked state. So P recommended using Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice as a substitute and it worked very well. You can find this bottled key lime juice in the baking section of your grocery store. It was by the Jello aisle in my store.
