Key Lime Pie

Ingredients:


Graham Cracker Crust:

1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
5 - 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 Tablespoons granulated white sugar


Filling:

One 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
3 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons grated lime zest
1/2 cup key lime juice


Topping:

2 Tablespoons granulated white sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream

 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F , placing the rack in the center of the oven.

2. To make the graham cracker crust, mix the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar. Press into the bottom and sides of a well greased 9 inch pie pan. Cover with plastic wrap and chill.

3. While the crust is chilling, with an electric mixer beat the egg yolks until pale and fluffy (about 3 minutes).

4. Gradually add the condensed milk and beat until light and fluffy (4-5 minutes).

5. Add the lime zest and lime juice, mixing thoroughly.

6. Pour the filling into the graham cracker crust and bake for 10 minutes, or until the filling is set.

7. Remove from oven and cool completely then refrigerate until ready to serve.

8. When ready to serve, prepare the topping by beating the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add the sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

9. Place topping onto the filling of the pie and serve.
