Recipe: Appetizing Key Lime Pie!

January 28, 2020

Key Lime Pie!. We are big key lime pie fans and used authentic key lime juice. The pie was extremely dense like a very dense cheesecake. All of the KLP we have had in Florida (including very recently) has been smooth creamy and sometimes even very light as if whipped cream had been added.

Key Lime Pie! This pie is tasty no matter how you slice it. Can you use regular limes instead of Key limes? You can use regular limes in place of Key limes in any Key lime recipe. You can have Key Lime Pie! using 11 ingredients and 8 steps. Here is how you cook it.

Ingredients of Key Lime Pie!

  1. It's of Crust.
  2. It's 2 cup of Graham crackers (better is Annies honey bear grahams! ).
  3. You need 1 tbsp of sugar.
  4. It's 4 tbsp of butter.
  5. Prepare of Pie.
  6. You need 2 each of egg yolks.
  7. It's 1 cup of key lime juice.
  8. It's 1 3/4 can of condensed milk.
  9. You need 1/4 tsp of salt.
  10. It's 1 1/2 tbsp of lime zest.
  11. It's 1 packages of cream cheese (nufchatel).

Key limes are a bit more tart than their traditional counterparts, but the results of this substitution will still be delicious. This is the gold standard of key lime pie recipes. I live in Cuba where key limes are abundant, but Cuba also juices those limes and packages them in small boxes that contain about one cup each. I have tried both ways, with fresh key limes and that packaged lime juice and there is absolutely no difference.

Key Lime Pie! instructions

  1. preheat to 350°F.
  2. cream the cream cheese until fluffy.
  3. mix lime juice and yolks then add to cream cheese.
  4. add condensed milk.
  5. add zest and salt.
  6. continue mixing on high speed until completely smooth.
  7. pour into pie shell and bake for 15 to 17 min only. take out, cool on rack and then refrigerate for a few hours..
  8. top with (make it fresh or dont make this pie!) whipped topping and last 1/2 tbsp zest.

But that is Cuban lime juice. If Key limes aren't available in your grocery store, look for bottled Key lime juice near the other bottled lime juices. Cool the baked crust, and add the Key lime filling. Key lime pie ingredients are simple: sweetened condensed milk, lots of lime zest and juice (preferably from key limes), and just enough egg to give it a good set. Pour the filling into a pre-baked graham cracker crust, bake briefly until the pie is set, and let it chill.
