Growing up in Florida, my favorite desert was always Key Lime Pie. Even though I am miles from the sunny beaches of Florida. The taste of this wonderful desert always brings back wonderful memories of that warm breeze blowing in from the ocean. The warm sand between the toes and the sound of the wind in the palms. This one is my favorite. I hope you enjoy as much as I do and that it takes you to that wonderful place in a hammock by the sea!
For those that are Gluten Free. Please feel free to use your favorite Gluten Free crust! I highly recommend the one they sell at Whole Foods. It has a wonderful short bread type crust.
9″ Graham cracker pie shell (or gluten free variety)
14oz can sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks (whites not used)
1/2 cup Key Lime Juice (I recommend Nellie & Joe’s Famour Key West Lime Juice)
Combine Milk, egg yolks, and key lime juice. Blend until smooth. Pour filling into pie shell and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before refrigerating. Just before serving top with whipped cream and garnish with lime slices. Enjoy!
