Key Lime Pie
recipe was acquired when I was visiting fabulous Key West,
Hence it is very delicious and very authentic.
This was my dessert of choice after dining on a superb
entrée of Coconut Shrimp in an awesome houseboat that
had been turned into a gourmet restaurant, nestled in a small
port off of the peer in the heart of town.
cup Lime Juice
can sweetened condensed Milk
Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
Egg Yolks until light and thick.
Blend in lime juice, then milk, stirring until mixture
desired, add a few drops of green food coloring.
Pour mixture into baked pie shell.
Beat egg whiles with cream of tartar until soft.
Gradually beat in sugar, beating until glossy peaks form
eggs whites over surface of pie to edge of crust.
Bake in 350 degree oven until golden brown, about 20
before serving (the pie, not you!)
design tip – Spread the meringue on the pie and then create
swirl-y peaks with a butter knife all over the top!
