Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie...brings back memories of when my husband and I went to the Florida Keys several years ago. Lots of sun, deep sea fishing, parasailing, and of course, lots of good eats including fresh key lime pie!

I love key lime pie and until we made it in class, I never realized how easy it is to make! Garnish with some lime slices and whipped cream and you will put many people at awe.

I whipped up my own crust by throwing some graham crackers and melted butter into my food processor. All I had on hand were Cinnamon graham crackers. I was a bit worried about the cinnamon flavor with the key lime but it turned out amazing. I think I may have discovered something there!

1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust (homemade or store bought)
3 c. sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. sour cream
3/4 c. key lime juice
1 T. grated lime zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice, and lime rind. Mix well and pour into a graham cracker crust.

Bake in a preheated oven for 8 minutes or until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of pie. Do not brown! Chill pie thoroughly before serving. Garnish with lime slices and whipped cream if desired.
