‘Tis the season of homemade strawberry ice cream and spring-themed popsicle sticks. Time to curate a list of refreshing fruit beverages and switch up the warm vegetable salads for fruit salads. And better yet, time for fruit pies! Key lime pie has easily become my new all-time favourite simply because of the effortless process. Sweetened and condensed milk has probably been one of my favourite things for years so much to the point that I used to eat it on bread. With only a handful of ingredients, this mouthwatering treat is sure to bring you a week of content!
- 2 1/2 key limes
- Fine crumbs from 18 honey graham wafers
- 300mL sweetened and condensed milk
- 4 egg yolks
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
1: Preheat oven to 375F.
2: In a bowl, sift together graham wafer crumbs, brown sugar and melted butter until well combined. Pour the mixture into a 23cm or 9-inch pie plate and bake for approximately 15 minutes. Take out after it is done and set aside to cool.
3: In a bowl, whisk the sweetened and condensed milk together with the egg yolks. Squeeze in your lime juice from your limes and stir. Pour the filling into your pie crust and pop into the fridge for approximately 7-8 hours.
Enjoy! I like mine plain, but you can just as well enjoy it topped with some nice whipped cream. What’s also nice is that the crust comes out nice and hard so you can easily cut your portions, I like a hassle-free crust!
