Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie is my husbands favorite dessert. He can eat a whole pie all by himself, and he will if I let him. Key lime pie is very easy and very yummy. I use the recipe right off the Nellie & Joe's Famous Key Lime Juice bottle. I know that's cheating a little to use bottled juice. So if you want to squeeze all those tiny key limes, knock yourself out.

You will need:

1 9" graham cracker pie crust (store bought or home made, I've used both)
1 14oz can Sweetened Condensed milk
1/2 C Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Juice
3 Egg yolks (whites not used)

Combine milk, egg yolks and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Pour filling into pie crust and bake at 350º for 15 minutes. Allow to stand 10 minutes before refrigerating. Just before serving, top with freshly whipped cream and garnish with lime slices if desired.

This time I decided to make my own pie crust. It's super easy. I buy the graham cracker crumbs and use the recipe on the box. It's just crumbs, sugar and butter.
