Key Lime Pie


Ingredients

Scale

For the Filling:

  • 4 Extra Large Egg Yolks
  • 2 Teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1 Can (14 oz) of sweetened condensed milk
  • The Juice from 12 Key Limes (or half a cup), (if you don’t have key limes, about 4 to 6 regular limes will work

For the Crust:

  • 15 Graham Crackers mashed up
  • 3 Tablespoons of Sugar
  • A quarter pound of butter

Instructions

  1. Take all the crust ingredients and mix them in a large bowl and then press them into a 9 inch pie plate. Bake the crust in a preheated oven for 9-10 minutes at 350 degrees (leave the oven on, you’ll need it again). Then, with an electric mixer, beat all four egg yolks until they begin to thicken and turn to a light yellow. Stop mixing and add the condensed milk. Then at a low mix speed, add the lime juice slowly and gradually add the lime zest. Pour the mixture into the pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes. Enjoy!
