Mrs. Raff's Key Lime Pie
4 egg yolks
1 14 oz. can condensed milk
1 tsp. lime zest
½ C freshly squeezed key lime juice
1 Graham cracker crust, or baked pie shell
Whipped cream, optional
Beat eggs well with wire whisk; mix in condensed milk. Add lime zest and juice; mix well. Pour into pie shell; use prepared shell, or make your own. (Recipe follows). Chill well to allow pie firm up. Garnish with whipped cream and a lime slice, if desired.
Graham Cracker Pie Crust:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
Combine all ingredients; press into bottom and sides of pie pan. Bake at 350* for 10 minutes.
This recipe is from my beautiful granddaughter, Emily. She is a newlywed, and made this yummy pie for her first dinner guests. Way to go, Emmy...I hope you will enjoy cooking as much as I do!
