Key Lime Pie

So after a weekend of perfect skiing with one of my bestest friends, Megan!! It was back to Tyler for relaxing and of course baking!! Well being that my sister and meg's brother's favorite dessert is key lime pie, it was a must. Now I wish I could take credit for this, I found this recipe on the side of the key lime bottle. So Im sure you are thinking, " What she bought key lime juice instead of the fresh squeeze?" Well in case you havent seen a key lime before, it's about the size of a bouncy ball. So squeezing them would have been a pain. So bottle it is. So here we go:
Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Pie
9" graham cracker pie crust (how to make below)
14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks (whites not used)
½ cup Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice

For the crust you need:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (10 crackers)
1/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
mix all ingredients together and using your fingers press into your pie plate. Bake for 15 minutes at 350*F or till golden brown. I would suggest baking the crust first and letting it cool for about 10 minutes before making the filling.

For the filling:
Mix all the ingredients together with a hand or standing mixer. Pour into cooled pie crust and bake for another 15 minutes at 350*F. chill for 4 hours or overnight. can be garnished with a slice of lime or whip cream.

Till next time,
Peace, love and cooking :)
