KEY LIME PIE
• 4 egg yolks
• 1 teaspoons grated Key lime zest (2 limes - or make extra for garnish)
• 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
• 1/2 cup Key lime juice (about 18 to 20 Key limes)
• graham cracker crust
• Sweetened whipped cream for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Place egg yolks and lime zest in a bowl and beat on high speed for at last 5 minutes, until the mixture is very glossy. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk in a steady stream and beat until thickened, another 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and add Key lime juice, beating only until combined.
Pour the lime mixture into the graham cracker crust. Bake about 12 minutes until filling has barely set. Remove from oven and let slowly cool until it is room temperature. Refrigerate.
Garnish with whipped cream.
