Key Lime Pie


Nothing screams Springtime like a homemade Key Lime Pie. I make Key Lime Pie all the time because it is one of my husband's favorite desserts.

This year I made a Key Lime Pie for dessert on Easter Sunday. Then I made another pie again tonight.

I found this awesome recipe on home based mom. I knew I had to try it because she added sour cream and I have never made a Key Lime Pie with sour cream!

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

5 tablespoons of butter, melted

2-14 ounce cans of sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup sour cream

3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

lime slices, lime zest and whipped cream for garnish

Directions:

In a pie plate combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Gently stir together until combined and press the crumbs down.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the condensed milk, lime juice and sour cream in a medium sized bowl. Throw in a few tablespoons of lime zest!


Pour the lime juice mixture into the prepared crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn off  the oven and let the pie sit in the oven for 30 minutes. Chill for 3 or 4 hours.


After the pie has chilled it can be decorated with lime slices. And whipped cream.


This pie would be perfect to serve at your next dinner party or to bring to a BBQ.
