Key Lime Pie

Yes.... I finally made it and it is proudly sitting on my kitchen counter and I can't wait to delve in. If it wasn't for Ian coming home in the afternoon it would definitely have been devoured.

This recipe was so simple. I couldn't believe how easy it was. I did cheat and buy a pre-made graham cracker base which obviously reduced the preparation needed. We had  had a can of condensed milk in our pantry left over from an uneventful camping trip which I was eager to use, so on todays shopping trip I bought the remaining ingredients needed then set to work on making this gorgeous dessert.

Key Lime Pie
1/2 Cup Juice from key limes or regular  limes (Key limes are sweeter)
1 can condensed milk (300mls/14oz)
Grated Lime Rind
4 Egg Yolks
Pre-prepared graham cracker base
Soft whipped Cream

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Using an electric mixer whisk the yolks until golden and thick. Whisk in the condensed milk and half the amount of lime juice. Stir in the last of the lime juice and the rind until combined. Pour into the graham cracker base and bake for 12-15 minutes until set. Allow to cool before topping of with soft whipped cream.

This pie lasted all of 2 hours, hence the poor quality photo. Oooops!!!
