Delicious and tart this pie is very refreshing. Use only juice that specifically says "key lime" juice. Egg whites can be beaten with sugar and added to top if desired.
- Combine condensed milk, egg yolks and juice and blend with mixer until smooth.
- Pour into crust and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
- Let stand 10 minutes and refrigerate.
This was super easy to make and quick, which having 3 boys and another on the way is vital to me. I added some green food coloring, and as I didn't have any key lime juice I just used regular lime juice. I know it's not the same, but the kids kept asking for more and I had to force my self to stop at one slice. Very Good!
This is the recipe off of the Nellie and Joe's Key Lime Juice bottle. I was nervous making it because I had to use Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk instead of the purchased sweetened condensed milk. But the recipe worked great. I had to bake my pie about 10 minutes longer (for a total of 25 minutes) than this recipe states. It set up well in the refrigerator for 1 day. I did not add any green food coloring to the filling. The filling turned out a very pretty lemony yellow color.
