Key Lime Pie

I’m a slacker…
And I don’t really like plums…
So I didn’t make the Tuesday’s With Dorie Plum Cake this week…
But stop over there anyway and see everyone else’s.

Instead, I made a super fast, super easy dessert that Mike loves – Key Lime Pie. This is Mike’s Mom’s recipe — and she stole it off the back of the container of Nellie and Joe’s Key West Lime Juice!

You’ll need:
1 premade graham cracker crust
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup lime juice
a few drops of green food coloring

Combine all ingredients and blend well with a hand mixer.

Pour into crust and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes and refridgerate at least 4 hours before serving.

We decided to let Bo try it. He’s sucked on limes and lemons before so we knew he could handle the tart flavor. That didn’t stop some of his expressions from being pretty adorable!

Mike prepares Bo’s first bite. This is the only picture I have of the finished pie!!
Bo waits for the spoon to make it to his mouth.

“Hum. Pie.”

“It’s a bit tart. And why are you taking my picture?”

“Sour pie. Humph.”

  1. Your recipe looks very good.

    Love the faces he is making regarding the pie. That is the face my 4 yr old gets when I ask him to eat anything he has never eaten before. I guess it never goes away.

    Happy ICLW

  2. Yum, I have always loved key lime pie, but never realized how simple it is to make. I am going to try it tonight! Thanks for the recipe.
