Welcoming Spring - Key Lime Pie - Easy Peasy Lime? Squeezy
I decided on pie for my birthday this year.
And yes, It is shameful, but I used a store bought crust.
This recipe is a bit small for a deep dish pie crust, but life goes on.
Adpated from - Epicurious
14 ounce can Sweetened Condensed Milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. Lime Juice
1 - 2 drops liquid Green Food Coloring
Whisk together and let stand for 20 minutes or so to allow the acid to thicken the sweetened condensed milk. Pour into a graham cracker pie crust. (Mine was deep dish, as you can see regular would have been plenty.)
Bake for about 15 minutes at 350
Cool completely before topping with stabalized whipped cream.
1 pint Whipping Cream
2 tbsp Sugar
Whip in chilled mixer bowl until firm.
1 Tbsp instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
Sprinkle Vanilla Pudding Mix over the whipped cream.
Beat quickly until mixed in. Scrape the bowl if needed and pulse again.
Pipe daisies onto the pie with a large tip.
