Key Lime Pie is one of my all-time favorite desserts! No matter where I go or whatever restaurant I enter, It’s the dish I always seek out! It really is, in my mind, the single best way to top off a good meal! Time for some little known trivia: You wanna know how to spot a GOOD key lime pie? The answer actually is NOT what you probably think. A good key lime pie (made with real Key Limes) is yellow. NOT GREEN! If you see a green key lime pie, it’s a fake. It might still taste good, but there’s no substitute for the real thing, trust me! Food Network knows this too, and their recipe for Authentic Key Lime Pie is the closest thing you will get without going all the way down to Florida!
If you want to give the REAL THING a try, here is what you’ll need to make Authentic Key Lime Pie:
8 ounces graham crackers, crushed
4 ounces butter, meltedFilling:
1 cup canned sweetened condensed milk, chilled
4 egg yolks, cold
1/2 cup key lime juice, cold
Whipped cream, for garnish
