Last weekend we ended up having two dinner parties! Thanks goodness I had whipped up this delicious key lime pie and was able to serve it at both parties. It was so easy to make and ended up being a huge success. I found the recipe on the food network and it adjusted a little.I changed the pie crust to the one my Grandma makes for our homemade cheesecake and adjusted the cooking times. My recipe is below:
Key Lime Pie
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
4 tbsp granulated sugar
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick butter) melted
2 (14-ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup key lime or regular lime juice
2 whole large eggs
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tablespoon lime zest
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter with your hands. Press the mixture firmly into a 9-inch pie pan, and bake until brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature before filling.
Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
In a separate bowl, combine the condensed milk, lime juice, and eggs. Whisk until well blended and place the filling in the cooled pie shell. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes and allow to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Once chilled, combine the sour cream and powdered sugar and spread over the top of the pie using a spatula. Sprinkle the lime zest as a garnish on top of the sour cream and serve chilled.
