Tart and creamy, our easy-as-pie recipe for Key Lime Pie will have everyone asking you which bakery you picked it up at. They'll be green with envy when you tell them it was your very own homemade!
What You'll Need
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon grated lime rind
- 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 1 (9-inch) prepared graham cracker pie crust
What to Do
In a large bowl, mix together sweetened condensed milk, lime rind, and egg yolks. Stir in lime juice and continue stirring until mixture has thickened.
Pour into pie crust and chill for 3 hours before serving.
You can serve this Key Lime Pie plain or topped with whipped cream, or you can garnish it with extra grated lime rind. And in case you were wondering, no baking is needed because the thickening of the filling is a result of the reaction of the milk with the lime juice. As with any dish containing raw eggs, be sure to store this in the refrigerator.
