Tart and tangy. Cool and creamy. I love Key Lime Pie. After recently paying about $5.50 for one slice at a restaurant I decided that was highway robbery and I there isn’t any reason why I shouldn’t make my own more often. It is so easy and so delicious. And it doesn’t even cost $5.50 to make an entire pie all your own.
5 egg yolks, beaten
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice
1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine the egg yoks, sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Mix well. Pour into unbaked graham cracker shell. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Top with freshly whipped cream and garnish with lime slices, if desired.
