{Key Lime Pie}

Happy Pi Day!! I thought this would be a great dessert for today, especially because this warm weather is making me excited for Summer. Also a fun dessert to make for St. Patrick’s Day and adding a little green food coloring to the filling 🙂 To make it extra easy on yourself buy a ready made graham cracker pie shell from the store, thats what I usually do 🙂

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 stick butter (4 Tbs) melted
2 (14oz) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup lime juice
2 whole eggs
Whipping Cream (homemade is best)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

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 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature before filling.

Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees

In a separate bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, and eggs. Whisk until well blended and place the filling in the cooled pie shell. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and allow to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Once chilled, Slice and serve with whipping cream on top.
