    Chef C.H.'s Note:

    We recently went to the Gaylord Texan Hotel over Christmas and had a slice of heaven in the form of a key lime pie delivered to our room. It wasn't to tart or to sweet and was oh so creamy. I was trying to recreate it for my DH birthday and hopefully got pretty close. He liked it - asked me to put some back so it wasn't totally eaten up by the family :). I also made some key lime sauce from debloves2cook Key Lime Sauce and put it on the plate as part of the presentation. Gave each plate a great look as well as a little lime kick. Cook time is refridgeration time. See the bottom of the instructions for a gluten free pie crust variation.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-12

    Yield:

    pie

    Units: US | Metric

    CRUST

    FILLING

    Directions:

    1. 1
      CRUST:.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350.
    3. 3
      Combine all the ingredients and then press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9" glass pie plate.
    4. 4
      Bake for 8 minutes or until golden.
    5. 5
      Remove from oven and let cool completely.
    6. 6
      Turn the oven down to 300.
    7. 7
      *~OR Use a store bought deep dish graham cracker crust~*.
    8. 8
      FILLING:.
    9. 9
      Meanwhile, whisk cream cheese, condensed milk, egg yolks and lime juice to combine.
    10. 10
      In a seperate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks begin to form. (When you lift up the beaters, the peaks should hold and still look glossy).
    11. 11
      Fold into the cream cheese/lime mixture until just combined. Don't over mix - this is what gives the pie it's fluffy texture.
    12. 12
      Pour into the cooled pie crust and bake for 25 minutes or until set. Pie will be solid with just a little wiggle in the middle when moved.
    13. 13

      GF VARIATION:
    17. 17
      Mix 1 1/2 cups crushed gluten free chocolate chex and 5 tablespoons melted butter for the crust (Don't need to add any extra sugar because the chex is already sweetened.)
    18. 18
      Continue with directions above.
