Lisa’s Mile High Key Lime Pie

Christopher is not my child that loves dessert but 
he does love Key Lime Pie–it’s my Daniel’s favorite too!  
I made this recently for one of my co-workers birthday…
he said it was the best he’d ever had…
I’m making one for Christopher’s work team today
 and I hope they think so too!  
 

Lisa’s Mile High Key Lime Pie

 
Crust
3 1/4 c graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp sugar
2 sticks butter, melted
Mix all ingredients together well.  
Press in bottom and up the sides of a 10″ spring form pan.  
Set aside and make the filling.
Filling
3 large egg yolks
1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lime juice or 
use Neely & Joe’s brand Key Lime Juice
3 cans sweetened condensed milk
With mixing bowl, combine all ingredients 
and mix until thoroughly combined.  
Pour into crust and bake on 300 degrees for 30-35 minutes, 
until the filling is partially set.  
Remove from the oven and let cool, 
then refrigerate overnight to set up thoroughly.  
Topping
2 cups cold heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Using mixer with whisk attachment, 
beat the cream on high until soft peaks form.  
Add the powdered sugar and whip until stiff peaks form.  
Spoon the cream into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.  
Make large, high swirls around the edge 
of the pie about 2 ” wide and 2″ high.  
Put a twisted slice of lime in the middle of the pie for a final touch.  
**********
The awesome ingredients…

Squeeze all those tiny little key limes…
The bad news is one of those bags with the tiny Key Limes only yields about 1/2 cup juice…
and it takes a while to squeeze each one by hand…
and, they’re about $5.00 a bag…
so, I used 1 of the bags for this recipe and 
a cup of the Neely & Joe’s Key Lime Juice… 

In your mixing bowl, add the key lime juice 
to the sweetened condensed milk…
add the eggs…
 
 Pour the batter into the crust…
 
It will be beautiful like this…
Bake on 300 degrees for 30-35 minutes…
Make your whipped topping with the heavy cream 
and the confectioner’s sugar…
Using a large star tip and a decorating bag, 
make extra high whipped topping swirls around the edge of the pie and finish with a twist of a slice of lime in the middle…
Enjoy!
