I always love a friendly smile, kind greeting, or uplifting word, so let's start with encouragement. This pie uses a store bought crust and easily prepared filling, yet produces crowd pleasing results.
Key Lime Pie
This is one of my favorites. So cool, rich, creamy and delicious, yet sooo easy to make. If you can't find authentic Key Lime Juice, just use the limes at your local market. The pie will still be wonderful! In fact, the company in the Key's that boasts of making the world's best Key Lime Pie, adds pineapple in their filling! I've had it and, trust me, it ain't the best in the world!. But I digress. On with the show...
1- 9 inch graham cracker pie shell
1- 14oz can Eagle Brand condensed milk
5- egg yolks
4 oz fresh lime juice
zest of one lime
In a bowl, combine condensed milk, lime juice, egg yolks, and zest. Mix thoroghly and pour into pie shell. Bake at 350 deg F for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. SIMPLE. Best if refrigerated overnight before serving.
Top with fresh whipped cream & toasted coconut or make meringue with left over egg whites. In fact, they're so easy, why not make several and give one away and put one in the freezer for a quick and delicious dessert when you're short on time!

Oh yeah! That IS a wine bottle being used as rolling pin! Why? To show everyone that a little imagination can make up for lack of tools or fancy gadgets and because I felt my 18" commercial rolling pin would be a little out of place in those photos. ;)
I hope you've enjoyed my 'Tale of Two Pies', my family sure did. Until next time, whatever you cook, make sure it's 'Cooke'd With Luv'
