DIRECTIONS

  • The combined recipe makes 2 crusts, so either use 2 graham cracker pie crusts, or if you’re ambitious, make 2 pretzel crusts (double the ingredients for the crust and pat into 2 pie pans).
  • Make the 2 Key Lime pies first- they’ll seem shallow, but remember you’re going to top them with Margarita topping.
  • Cool pies.
  • Make the Margarita Pie filling, spread over the top of the Key Lime pies, then chill.

  • Beat egg yolks until light and lemon colored.
  • Add lime juice.
  • Stir in milk, sour cream and food coloring.
  • Pour into pie crust.
  • Bake 15 minutes in 325 degree oven.
  • Chill.
