Something you may not know about me is that I lived in South Florida for quite a few years. South Florida is known for sunshine, beaches, beautiful weather, awful traffic and Nellie & Joe’s Key Lime Juice..
I love this stuff. Fortunately, other folks love it also – enough that it is now carried in most grocery stores (even here in the Rocky Mountains). Anyway, authentic Key Lime Pie is pretty simple to make, especially if you use a premade graham cracker crust which I usually do. Hey, do I look like Martha Stewart?
So, to make the filling you pour a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk in a mixing bowl.
add 3 egg yolks
with 1/2 cup of Nellie & Joe’s Famous Key Lime Juice. Don’t try squeezing a few limes and using that juice (you know who you are). It just isn’t the same. Trust me on this one…
Mix it until it’s smooth – it only takes a few minutes.
then just pour it all into the premade pie crust and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes, or until it sets up. Let it cool on the counter for a few minutes and then put it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. You can garnish it with some whipped cream and lime slices, or you can just eat it as is in all it’s tropical lime glory. I didn’t even wait for it to cool..but that’s kind of typical of me…
