Best Key Lime Pie Ever
You will find this well balanced and light key lime pie to be one of the best that you have ever tasted! My daughter made it and it delighted everyone, we hope you enjoy it as well.
For the pie crust
1/3 light brown sugar
4 tablespoons of butter
1 and 1/2 cups of crushed graham crackers
For the pie filling
1 tablespoon grated lime zest
1 cup of whole milk
2 cans of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz each can)
3/4 cup lime juice squeezed.
2 tablespoons of confectioners sugar
1 cup of heavy cream
1 tablespoon of lime zest (to spread on top of the whipped cream)
Combine brown sugar, melted butter and graham crumbs all together until well mixed. Press it all along a pie pan bottom and sides. Bake for about 10 minutes at 375 degrees, let cool.
Whisk sweetened condensed milk, whole milk, lime juice and zest. Bake at 350 for about 18-20minutes and it will be a bit wobble but that’s ok. Wait for it to cool down then put in the fridge.
Mix heavy cream with confectioners sugar until medium peaks form then top the cooled pie and spread the lime zest all over the pie. Cool for a few hours before serving it cold.
It's so easy to make and it's SO delicious, I hope you try it!
I got the Rose Medallion Tureen yesterday at an estate sale and the runner and napkin Familie Rose print is new and is coming out soon.
