Key Lime Pie

From the day she started eating solid foods, my daughter has been a citrus junkie!
Oranges, grapefruit, lemon and lime...she loves it all. She eats lemons like some people eat apples.

Can you believe she does not like key lime pie?
I don't understand, but, who am I to judge.

Hubby dearest and one of my uncles would sell their left kidney in order to get key lime pie. To me, that is worth making it for!

I will say, it is well worth it to find the key lime juice. I tried every store in our area with no luck. I happened to find it at our local Wegman's. We just got our first one last year...and I am addicted!

One pre made graham cracker crust
2 (14 oz) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 Cup key lime juice
2 Large eggs
1 Cup sour cream
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
Lime Zest


1. Preheat oven to 325
2. Combine condensed milk, lime juice, and eggs,
3. Whisk until blended and place in the pie shell
4. Bake for 15 minutes, and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours
5.Mix powdered sugar and sour cream (frosting)
6. Frost pie and sprinkle with lime zest
7. Serve chilled


Mixing up the "meat" of the pie
Pie is filled and chilled, ready to frost.
Yes, the frosting still looks like sour cream, but the powdered sugar gives it just the right amount of sweetness.
Frosted, zested, and ready to eat!

I found the original recipe here.
