We call it Key Lime Pie, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually used KEY limes to make it.
Years ago I was walking around in the grocery store with my son, Matt, and we started talking about Key Lime Pie. We had heard of it, and it sounded good, but we both agreed that we really didn’t know what key limes were, or what kind of ingredients such a pie might need. So we went with our best guesses…limes, sour cream, whipping cream…
Then we got home we looked through my pile of cookbooks, and discovered that we had bought a lot of things we didn’t need. But we found a couple of recipes which we combined, and tweaked to make this easy, yummy dessert. It has been a Thanksgiving favourite for at least 10 years.
8 large egg yolks
2 14 ounce cans of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice
