The Easiest Pie Recipe Ever!

I have recently discovered how easy it is to make Key Lime Pie... drum roll please... its a can of sweetened condensed milk (nummy) some of this key lime juice and some egg yolks. Period. Thats it. A little graham cracker crust and bam - Key Lime Pie. If I had known how easy this pie is to make - I would have been showin' up with Key Lime Pie at any given notice. Honestly, its so easy, and incredibly inexpensive.

Heres the recipe (taken from the side of the Key Lime Juice bottle):
  • one graham cracker crust
  • one 14ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup Key Lime Juice
Combine the milk, juice and yolks until creamy (I simply used a spoon and stirred till it was all combined, didn't take very long), pour into the pie shell and bake at 350degrees for 15 minutes. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before refrigerating.

If you like Key Lime Pie - you gotta try this. Honest. Pick up a pie crust and a can of sweetened condensed milk at the store, or and keep your eye out in the juice section, or the baking section, I forget where I found the special key lime juice... it was cheap too... I think it was the juice section of the grocery store.

Go do it! You'll thank me.

My mom used to make KLP all the time. We had a tree in the back yard and had to squeeze the limes. My mother would freeze the juice in ice trays so she could pull out just a bit of juice for a pie.

This is so funny, because Sean just made a key lime pie last night! It's his second in less than a month because it was so easy. He squeezed his own limes though (the normal kind, not key limes) and topped it with Cool Whip. So good!
