simple and easy key lime pie
« on: April 09, 2012, 02:33:46 PM »
the folks at "Nellie and Joes Key Lime Juice" have the simplest and easiest recipe

pre heat oven to 350degrees

mix
1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk (Eagle Brand)
1/2 cup of Nellie and Joe's key lime juice
3 egg yolks (no whites).... I add a 4th egg yolk

9" graham cracker crust (I use the pre made "two extra slices" as it makes the custard thinner)

bake for 15min... I add an additional 8-10 minutes until the custard just starts to pull away from the crust

cool, then refrigerate

top with Cool Whip

Will have to try that one.....sounds delicious.........I loves me some lime (lemon too) pies.


My wife has a lemon pie recipe that doesn't require the heat treatment and only has three ingredients.
If I can pry the info out of her, I'll post it.  ;)


*She also makes a top-notch key-lime cake with cream cheese frosting (all scratch recipe).   :D

1. Preheat oven to 350 F

2. Combine all (that includes the Tequila ;D )  ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth

3. Bake ~12 - 14 minutes

I GUARANTEE it is the best you have ever had.

Haz, do you drink the shots with the pie or while it's baking?

I'm no cook and I've never made a pie, but I'm surprised that neither of these recipes require a pie tin.  Is it assumed that one would be used?
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
—Patrick Henry

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

I'm just gonna throw in my 2-cents here...

As a Florida boy for the past near-30-years, I have eaten a lot of key lime pie.  I have even eaten key lime pie on Key West at the place that claims to be the original.

And, I can say in all honesty that the Haz interpretation of that particular delicacy is the finest example in the genre.

The tequila isn't noticeable as a "tequila" flavor.  But, it brings things together in a synergistic way that just works.

AND...

It gives you the excuse to crack that unopened bottle of "gold" and knock back a couple until the pie is chilled and ready.

If you DO happen to try Haz's recipe, I believe it will be highly unlikely that you will ever make it any other way.

I too have had pie from the aforementioned pie joint on Key West!  It's been 36 years so I'm sure my pallet is clear!  If I can find some Key Lime juice, I'll give both a try and provide a range report!

Either way, it's pie! 

'Nuf said!...... ;D
