~How To Make A Super Easy Key Lime Pie~

You're going to think that you are in the Tropical Keys!


Directions;
Start with your graham cracker crust;
And once you learn to make your own you will not want
 Those store bought ones again!
 Graham Cracker Crust
1 package graham crackers
(You can use a food processor or
 Place them in a bag and crush them with your rolling pin)
In a bowl, add these items;
Graham crackers
1/4 cup Sugar, or less (I do not like mine too sweet)
6TBL. Melted Butter
Mix together and press into a 9-inch pie pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 4 minutes
Until just lightly browned
(Do Not Overcook)

I love the smell of this crust!
Once it is baked, let it cool!



Now, for the Key Lime Pie Filling;

In a bowl now add these three ingredients;
1 can (14oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/3 cup lime juice (fresh or bottled)
1tsp. Grated lime peel (You will need a zester tool for this)
Beat sweetened condensed milk and lime juice until combined;
Stir in your lime zest.

Pour into the cooled pie crust;
Spread with whipped Cream,
Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.




Making Fresh Whipped Cream
1 pint size of whipped cream
1/4 cup powder sugar
2tsp. Of vanilla

~I make my own vanilla~


Beat with your electric mixer till slightly stiff!
Place on top of the pie and refrigerate till well chilled!

This would be a very nice and easy pie to make for
 Mother's Day!
Father's Day!
Easter!
Picnics!
Any day!
Or for a cool, quick refreshing spring or summer dessert!

Mmm... I'll be right over for a slice :)

You know I have an almost identical recipe to this and I made it just tonight!

The only difference is I add cream to the lime mix and don't spread some on top.

We had friends round for dinner tonight and had this. My husband went through to the kitchen later on to make some more coffee and when he came back through he whispered to me that he just couldn't resist finishing off the pie! Even though he had eaten two slices at dinner :)

Oh this sounds so tasty Roxy! I love key lime pie! I just had a lime Fruttare bar and it was good but not quite as tasty as this would be...:) Have a wonderful week!

Blessings, Vicky

Roxy, This looks delicious and I'm not even a fan of Key Lime Pie! My husband is though. My mom used to make it for him when we would visit in the summer. And she had a mixing bowl identical to the one in the picture. I wish I had it now! So cool and retro :) I copied the recipe down and I AM going to give it a try in a couple weeks when my sister comes to visit.
