Key lime pie

"Now where did I put my apron?"

“Theminimice” would like to show you a great recipe for a pie they often make.
This pie is so easy to make and it tastes great. May not be authentic due to that there is no eggs in the filling and no key limes. But feel free to use them. Normal limes are so much more easy to get hold of. Hope you try this pie out. Perfectly balance of sweet and tart.

Here is the recipe:

1/4 cup sugar
10 digestive crackers
5 tbs melted butter
Mix in food processor and press into an 8 or 9 inch pan.
Put in oven for 5 minutes on 320 F to firm.
Chill a bit while making the filling.

2 cans of sweetened condensed milk
1 TBS of lime zest
3/4 cups of fresh lime juice (about 4-5 limes normal limes)
1/2 cup of sour cream (light is fine)
Mix well, but do not whisk it hard, just combine.
Put in oven for about 15 minutes at 350 F
Take out of oven and let it come to room temperature before chilling in fridge. Chill about one hour before serving or make a day ahead.
Serve with light whipped cream with a bit of icing sugar. Thin slices of lime also looks very festive.

A slice for the mouse cook

  2. As a rule, I do not eat pie. However, I just might try this recipe because it's light. Perhaps when I have company. Thank you for sharing it.
