Mom's Key Lime Pie

Submitted by: JEWELSRICH

Introduction

Super easy recipe! Quick to make if you use pre-made pie crust and if you already have your lime juice. Super easy recipe! Quick to make if you use pre-made pie crust and if you already have your lime juice.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1/2 cup key lime juice (or any fresh lime juice)
    4 beaten egg yolks
    1 - 14 oz. can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 tsp. lime zest
    2 drops green food coloring (optional)
    store-bought graham cracker crust

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Prep time does NOT include juicing the limes. Juicing the limes can take anywhere from 10-20 min, depending on how many limes you use and what method of juicing you use.

6-8 standard limes or 12-14 key limes yields about 1/2 cup of lime juice. My mom says she uses a garlic press to juice the tiny key limes.

Combine lime juice, beaten egg yolks, and sweetened condensed milk in a bowl and beat with a hand mixer on high for about a minute. Stir in lime zest and food coloring, one drop at a time, if desired (neither of these last 2 ingredients are critical to the recipe).

Pour mixture into a graham cracker crust. You can reduce the fat and calorie content of this recipe if you make your own low-fat, low-cal graham cracker crust.

Bake 15-20 min at 400 degrees. Cool completely on rack, then refrigerate. Cut the pie into 8 equal pieces. When you serve it, garnish with a spritz of canned whip for 15 calories per 2 T. YUM!!!

Serving Size: Makes 8 servings.
