Key Lime Pie
From: My friend Cula brought us a pie about a month ago and my husband LOVED it so I got her recipe so we have something to make with all of the limes our lime tree is producing.
1 pastry shell
1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. lime juice
2 TBL water
green food coloring if desired
Line pastry shell with foil and bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes.
Separate egg yolks from whites. Place yolks in mixing bowl. Whisk in sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, and water. Add food coloring. Whisk until mixture thickens. Spoon filling into pastry shell and bake at 325 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cool and serve. My friend uses cool whip for the top but you could use the egg whites to create a meringue.
