Frozen Key Lime Pie ?
One of my favorite bloggers mentioned that frozen key lime pie was a favorite snack. Hmmm...frozen key lime pie?
Key limes are different from regular limes. They are tarter and very small, a lot smaller than regular limes. The tree is very cold sensitive and doesn't survive the winters where I am, so even in Pure Florida land I have to buy the limes or the juice.
The great thing about fresh key lime pie, besides that it's fresh, is it's ease of construction.
It's a real man's pie...doesn't take much skill to make it.
Here's what you need:
1 graham cracker pie crust
3 egg yolks...(Pablo, I know there's 4 in the picture, I like to pump it up)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of Nellie and Joes Key West Lime Juice
Some whip cream (not pictured) Squirty kind works fine.
Dump egg yolks, lime juice, and milk into a mixing bowl.
Dump greenish goo into pie shell.
Bake 15 minutes at 350 F.
Squirt whipped cream on pie.
Not as simple as the frozen version, but almost...
