Florida Key Lime Pie

Florida Key Lime Pie

Delicious key lime pie, make it at home and enjoy it at any time even if you are not in the Keys.















1 pie shell (9 inch)
5 egg yolks
14 ounces milk, sweetened condensed
8 tablespoons lime juice
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
lime zest


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Put the yolks in a large bowl and beat them with a whisk, just breaking them and mixing them well.

Slowly stir in the condensed milk.

Mixing well, stir in the lime juice.

The mixture should be tart--if it isn't pleasantly tangy, stir in more lime juice.

Pour the filling into the pie shell.

Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove and cool.

Whip the cream, slowly adding the confectioners' sugar.

Spread over the pie and sprinkle the lime rind over.

Serve at room temperature, but refrigerate if not serving within 3 hours of baking.

I used a pre-made graham cracker crust and added 1 tsp. vanilla extract and 1 1/2 tsp. grated lemon zest to the filling to give it a bit more zing. Set up perfectly after cooling to room temp for 2 hours, then refrigerating overnight.

This is a great recipe. It's quick, easy and delicious. Everyone I've ever served it to, likes it. I always keep the ingredients on hand for something I can throw together quickly.

I just got back from the Keys where I had Key Lime Pie. I made this recipe when I got back. It was absolutely delicious! I made it slightly lower in fat by using fat free whipped cream from an aerosol can. It was still wonderful. The amount of lime juice was just perfect. Very fast and easy.
