Key Lime Pie

kelly snyder


I have a obsession with finding recipes, and I came across this one and tried it and my family loves it and I do too. The funny thing is as I have gotten older my tastes have changed, because I was not a big fan of citrus desserts...well that has changed after this one. My momma that has been gone for some years now was a great cook ,and I have used her knowledge and love for cooking to teach myself a few things. I hope you like it and tell me what you think.

2 Tbsp
6 Tbsp

2 (14oz) can(s)
sweetened condensed milk
egg yolks
1 tsp
lime zest
1 cup
heavy cream
3/4 cup

Directions Step-By-Step

In small bowl stir graham cracker crumbs and sugar together, Add melted butter, and stir to combine, then press into 9-inch pie pan
For the filling: In a large bowl with a electric mixer, mix sweetened condensed milk, Key lime juice, lime zest and egg yolks.
Pour into graham cracker crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 20 minutes. Refrigerate at least four hours to set. While this sets, put a mixing bowl made of glass or metal in the freezer to get cold to make your topping. (would not recommend plastic does not get cold enough)
Prepare whipped cream: With a electric mixer, in a bowl that has been chilled in freezer. Mix on high speed the heavy cream and 3/4 c sugar until peaks appear. Garnish with whipped cream and serve.
