One dessert we love making here in Florida is scrumptious Key Lime Pie. You can get many variations of the recipe. Many people even grow the delicious key limes in their own yards. I ran across one that sounds both delicious and easy to make on epicurious.com. Give it a try and enjoy:
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 tbsp sugar
5 tbsp melted butter
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp fresh or bottled key lime juice
3/4 cup heavy chilled cream
Preheat oven to 350*
Stir together graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar in a 9 inch pie plate, Mix well and press mixture evenly on the bottom and up the sides.
Bake crust in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes then remove and let cool. Keep oven on.
Make filling and bake the pie-
Whisk together eggs yolks and condensed milk in a bowl. Add juice and whisk till slightly thickened. Pour filling into crust and bake in middle of the oven for 15 minutes. Cool pie completely then chill for 8 hours. Filling will set as it cools.
Just before serving beat the cream in a bowl with an electric mixer till it holds stiff peaks. Top pie with cream and serve. Enjoy!
