Key Lime Pie made by a Floridian

Yellow-y goodness, like the Florida sun & sunshine!
So Floridian that I am, I do not like key lime pie. It's too acidic for me. But, my hubby does so I make it for him. You can not get more authentic than Nellie & Joe's Recipes from the Keys... & I use their recipe & their key lime juice. It's simple & it makes my hubby happy!
Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Pie
9" graham cracker pie crust
14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk3 egg yolks (whites not used)½ cup Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime JuiceC

Combine milk, egg yolks and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Pour filling into pie crust and bake at 350ยบ for 15 minutes. Allow to stand 10 minutes before refrigerating. Just before serving, top with freshly whipped cream, or meringue, and garnish with lime slices. 

I substitute a Nilla pie crust, because, again, hubby likes it that way.

*Lishie tip- Save the egg whites for an egg white omelette!
Key Lime Pie to go!!!
