Key Lime Pie……

ok. Get your grocery list ready.

You will need to add only FOUR items to it.

and a couple optional items, if you so desire.

(unless of course, you have a VERY well stocked pantry)

Key Lime Pie:

1/2 cup Lime Juice

5 egg YOLKS

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 regular size Graham Cracker pie crust

Mix first three ingredients together, and pour into pie crust.  Bake 375 degrees for 15 minutes.  Cool completely and serve.  Yum-O !!!

Cool, refreshing, delicious and super SIMPLE!!!!

….the pie I made was gone so fast, I did not have time to take a picture of it.  So, after looking endlessly for a GREEN Key Lime Pie, I had to resort to just a picture of limes.   What is up with that???  every Key Lime pie image I found was YELLOW!!!  hellooooo…..  I am a visual person, and when I think if anything lime, I think GREEN!!  so…. I cheated just a teeny bit and added  (an optional) TWO drops of green food coloring to get just the right depth of greeness.  :)     I suggest you do it too.  haha.

and when served, I added a couple squirts of  (again optional) Redi-Whip topping.  I highly suggest that as well.

I am always full of suggestions huh?

You have GOT to try this pie!!!   I had it whipped up and in the oven in less than 5 minutes.  No need to test for doneness.  15 minutes, it is done, trust me.

Let me know if you try it, and how easy and delicious you think it is!!!!!!

The perfect summertime pie!!!!!!!!!!

Stay tuned,  I have a FUN adventure for this upcoming weekend, and plan to have an entertaining blog post Sunday / Monday.  :)

    For the record…I’m a key lime faNATIC!. I’ve tried many and the best I can make at home are made with Nellie and Joe’s 100% Key West Lime Juice. It is manufactured in the Keys from 100% real Key Limes. When you don’t have access to real Key Limes, this is it. $5/bottle. There really is a difference. Oh…and Kelli….real Key Lime Pie is NOT EVER green. 8) LOL! Thought you didn’t like most green foods anyway!! Ha!Ha!Ha!

      When I bought lime juice, I noticed there is an actual KEY lime juice. I bought the regular one though.
      and no, green food is something I usually shy away from, but this SOLD me right away!!!
