Gosh I have had this recipe for ever and a day...It is Tart and Sweet at the same time...as some would same it does have Pucker Power. It has always reminded me of when we used to go to Marie Callenders Restaurant I always ordered Key Lime Pie.
There are many variation of Florida Key classics, some made with flakey crust, but this is my favorite one. It is creamy, tart lime filling and topped with whipped cream and a wonderful garnish.
This is a stock picture for now till I put mine up.
You are welcome to add yours too.

  2. Filling: While the crust is cooling start your filling. Beat yolks with condensed milk just to blend, add lime juice and beat until smooth (filling will be soft). Tint pale green and pour into graham shell. Chill 2 hourx
  3. Whipping Cream: Heavy cream, in large bowl, put in sugar (you might want to put a towel over the mixer) becareful not to get it twisted in the mixer. Put the setting on high, till you have stiff peaks.
  4. Pull pie out of frig and spread whip cream over the top of the pie garnish with lime zest. Put back into frig for several hours before serving or better yet overnightso the filling is somewhat firm, (it will never really be completely firm)
