I got this key lime pie recipe from my good friend Judy in a recipe swap a few years ago. This is the first time I have ever made Key Lime Pie. Oh man. I am kicking myself for not having tried it sooner. It was sooo good! Absolutely creamy and tart and sweet and wonderful! The whipped cream on the top was the perfect compliment to the tangy filling.

Key Lime Pie

1 9″ graham cracker crust
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
zest of 1 lime, optional
1-2 drops green food coloring, optional
Whipped cream for topping
Blend milk and egg yolks till smooth. Add lime juice and zest. Add green food coloring if desired. Pour into crust and bake at 300° for 15 minutes. Cool and chill. Spread sweetened whipped cream over the top just before serving.
Why are you still sitting there? Go and make this pie. Run to the store for limes if you need to. You won’t be sorry!
-This recipe only fills the pie shell half full. The remainder is filled with whipped cream. If you prefer, you could double the filling recipe and just serve whipped cream on top of each slice.
