Key Lime Pie
Creamy, refreshingly tangy and sweet summer dessert.
- 1½ cups graham cracker
- 8 tablespoons butter unsalted, melted
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 limes halved and sliced
Making The Crust
Crush the graham cracker until very fine. Transfer the crumbs into a large mixing bowl, add sugar, and melted butter. Combine well.
Press crust into 9 ½ inch pie dish.
Making The Filling
Combine sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, and fresh lime juice in a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer and beat on medium-high speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Pour filling over the graham cracker crust and bake for 15 minutes to at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow to cool completely.
Making The Sweet Cream Topping
Beat cold heavy whipping cream for several minutes on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar and continue to beat a few more moments on medium-low speed.
Spread the sweet cream topping over the cool-to-the-touch key lime filling. Chill for 2 hours.
