I made a Key Lime pie this week for one of Daryl's clients. It is so simple and I thought I would share the recipe with you.
Key Lime Pie
1 can Eagle Brand condensed milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup Key Lime juice
Stir together the Eagle Brand and egg yolks. Add the lime juice. Pour into a pie crust and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Use any type crust you like, but I make mine out of Keebler graham cracker crumbs using the instructions on the box.
Let the pie cool on the counter top for a while, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold.
For the whipped cream on top, beat 1 cup of heavy whipping cream together with 1/3 cup of powdered sugar until it looks like it does in the picture. Not really! I hope you and I both can make it prettier next time!
Some people add green food coloring to Key Lime Pie. I guess that is because they think it should be green since the outside of a lime is green. The juice isn't green, though, and I like mine to be the natural color.
That's it! It is a perfect dessert in the summer since it is cool and simple.
And it reminds me that I really want to go to Key West one day.
