Abby bakes Key Lime Pie!

Abby decided this week that she wanted to make key lime pie. I was really excited about it, because I love it, but the hubby was even more excited. This has to be his favorite dessert, other than strawberry shortcake!





Have you ever tried to juice and zest a key lime? They are tiny! Abby squeezed the whole bag of key limes to get 1/2 cup of juice and it took about 4 key limes to get 1 Tbsp of zest. But it was worth it in the end. It is a great tasting pie!






We will make this pie again and again. It is really that good!

Abby's Key Lime Pie:

1 9in. graham cracker pie shell--we used store bought

1/2 cup key lime juice

1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk

1 Tbsp key lime zest

4 large egg yolks

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Mix all 4 ingredients until combined. Pour into graham cracker pie shell and bake for 15-17 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, then put into the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

**If you make your own graham cracker crust, make sure to bake it first before you pour in the filling.**
