Remember when I visited Minnesota? (Kudos to you, if you do! That was back in my early blogging days..)
Well, my mom took the same trip this past week to visit my uncle, who has cancer. :( She has been gone for five days so far, and will be gone for two more. Thus--my sister and I have the run of family meals for the time being. And pretty much everything else. If ya know what I mean. ;)
The result? Amazingness. And an inspired blog post containing the recipe. ♥
delectable key lime pie
for the crust:
1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c sugar
6 tablespoons melted butter
combine, shape in 9" pie plate, and bake at 375º for 8 minutes.
remove and cool.
for the filling:
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c key lime juice
3 egg yolks
combine and pour into cooled crust. bake at 375º for 15 mins.
remove and chill until serving.
..Of course, being the ultimate blond that I am, I failed to get photos of the actual baked finished product. I also forgot about getting the usual professional food photographer's single tantalizing photo of a just-bitten-into-piece.
Maybe that's because it went down so quickly? Besides, I know we all have good imaginations and can visualize each of these stages of said Key Lime Pie.
Or there's the option of making it so you won't need imagination. :]
Cheerio! And Happy Sunday.
