Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a Homemade Key Lime Pie instead of 'traditional' fare?


Thinking 'green' for St. Patrick's Day?  Not crazy about some of the traditional idea's to make or bake?  Key Lime Pie is light green....  green is a fun food color for St. Patrick's Day.  It's a win-win situation! 

If you don't have the little Key Limes you can substitute lime juice you can purchase at the store.  But if you have to go to the store for the lime juice, be sure to look for a bag of fresh, little Key Limes as your first choice.



Key Lime Pie

1 bag of Key Limes (the very small limes!)
4 egg yolks
1 - 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 pre-made graham crust ready for filling

Zest about 4 of the limes.
Slice and juice all the limes save one. That one will be for garnish.
Strain the juice and reserve. You should have about 2/3 cup of liquid.
In an electric mixer bowl whip the egg yolks and lime zest 5 minutes.
Add the condensed sweetened milk and whip 3-4 minutes more.
Add the lime juice and mix until blended.
Pour into the graham crust. Bake 15 minutes at 325 degrees until filling is set.
Cool 20 minutes on counter. Chill 2 hours in the refrigerator.

A Topping Option

1 c heavy or whipping cream
1 -2 T confectionery sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 t vanilla extract
*optional - 3-6 oz. cream cheese, softened
Mix and use to decorate dollops on your pie if you desire a topping.
