There is something so summery and special about key lime pie and this recipe is extremely simple, you won’t be sorry if you try it!
This pie is sweet, tart, creamy, and a perfect end to a Summer evening or picnic.
Key Lime Pie, makes one (6-8 servings)
– One pie crust (one cup of graham cracker crumbs, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of melted butter mixed together and pressed in to a pie plate) or…you can cheat and buy a pre-made crust.
– 3 cups of sweetened condensed milk – 1 cup of sour cream – the zest of 5 key limes – the juice of an entire bag of key limes (a little less than one cup)
Preheat your oven to 350
Whisk together your condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice, and lime zest until it’s nice and smooth. Pour the prepared mix in to your pie crust and bake for 6-10 minutes until you see very tiny bubbles at the top of your pie. Do not let your pie over bake, it should only stay in the oven long enough to set and shouldn’t brown at all. Let your pie cool and place it in the fridge to chill for 4-24 hours before serving.
p.s. I covered my pie with homemade hint of orange whipped cream.
