Not too long ago, I was craving key lime pie. I decided to look up the recipe and found that it is incredibly simple to make, using just four ingredients: graham cracker crust, lime juice, egg yolks, and sweetened condensed milk. So when my mother and grandmother-in-law came over for dinner a few weeks go, I decided to make some key lime pie.
I found the recipe at Baking Bites, a great reference for all things sweet. I followed her directions completely and was rewarded with a very fresh tasting, custardy pie. There are some things that I would do different next time. The most important being that I would make the graham cracker crust. The pie was so fresh tasting, and jarred with the processed/packaged/preservative taste of the store bought crust. I would also zest the limes and add that to the pie – not only adding to the lime flavor but giving it a nice green-flecked look.
