Florida Key Lime Pie

While I was in Florida last month, I decided to send out some postcards to friends. One of them had a really simple recipe for Florida Key Lime Pie on it, which seemed interesting. So before sending it to a friend of mine who is in culinary school, I copied down the recipe. Luckily, I also found a digital copy of the postcard online to post here. =)

Here's what you need:

4 egg yolks
1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
3 oz. Key Lime juice (equal to 6 tablespoons)
1 graham cracker pie crust
whipped cream

Yep, that's all you need! Don't believe me? Here's the postcard.

Assemble your ingredients and preheat the oven to 350ᵒF, please.

Simply combine the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk in a bowl like so, and mix it up till it's all nice and combined...

Then start adding the Key Lime juice; I added 2 tablespoons at a time and mixed in between...

Once all 6 tablespoons (3 oz.) of the juice have been added, keep stirring until you have a nice, creamy consistency. Then pour it into your graham cracker crust...

And bake for 10 minutes at 350ᵒF...

Ta-dah! But hold on, you're not quite done yet. Let the pie cool for a bit on a wire rack, then place it in the fridge to let it chill completely before serving with whipped cream. =D

NOW, you can enjoy.

Your Cupcake,
