Tonight’s handmade project is key lime pie. Sean is from Florida and when I saw that our local grocery store had fresh key limes for sale, I knew I had to purchase a bag and make a key lime pie for my husband.
So this is what I did earlier today:
The recipe for the pie itself is pretty simple. Mix 3 egg yolks, 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, and half a cup of key lime juice. Pour into a graham cracker crust and bake for half an hour in a 325 degree oven.
I just took the pie out of the oven five minutes ago, and here is what it looks like:
It will look a lot prettier once I whip the cream and dollop it all over the top of that pie. In the meantime, I’m supposed to let it cool. Ideally, the pie should be left to chill in the refrigerator overnight before serving, but yeah, I don’t know if that’s going to happen.
