Fiancé adores his key lime pie (and I adore the pretty green color). Everywhere we go for dinner, he asks if they have it on the menu come time for dessert, and we will drive an hour to one of our favorite spots that serves the peeerfect slice. Last night as we were finalizing our registry, we added a pie pan and server to our list... so I can make key lime pie for us, of course. I can't wait to try the recipe below and see how I do...
9" graham cracker pie crust (Thank goodness we will have the proper pan now!)
14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks (whites not used)
½ cup Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice
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, or meringue, and garnish with lime slices.
Sounds pretty simple, right? For Fiancé's sake and in the name of endless years of marital bliss, let's hope I can master this one...
