Key Lime Pie

To bake or not to bake, that is the question. The fear of salmonella, and other food-borne pathogens, has created a change in the classic recipe. Many claim baking causes a change in the texture; I can’t argue that point. But, is that change a bad thing? I think in the end, it’s a personal choice. So I give you a few options.

1 prebaked graham cracker crust
3 egg yolks (or 2 whole eggs)
1  14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon lime zest (optional)

Whisk together eggs and condensed milk until well combined
add lime juice and zest, mix well

Pour into pie shell
refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight

Pour into pie shell
bake for 10 minutes at 300°F
cool completely and refrigerate before serving

Or, there’s the curd method. All you have to do is substitute lime juice for lemon. I haven’t tried this, but there’s no reason why it wouldn’t work.

It's #latke season one and all! Happy #hannukah to you and yours. A #smallbatch of course. #audreycancook #latkelove I bought a fake tree and it's a Coast Redwood. Let the #decorating begin. #christmas in #California #christmastree #decorations #nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook
