Donna and I spent a week in Key West last year (before the Hurricane). We ate Key Lime Pie every day at different places, to see which one we liked best. Yes I like Key Lime Pie.

When we got back home Donna said "You'll never want to eat another KLP for a long time!"

Au contraire! I love it. So I went online and checked out a few recipes. I settled on one and adapted it for my own use. It has been praised widely among my circle of friends. One said it was the best he ever had.

So if anyone is interested, here is my recipe. (I just made one this morning  Pant)

Ingredients
One can Sweetened Condensed Milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup key lime juice (my local grocer stocks it. It is much better than stock lime juice)
1/4 cup pure pineapple juice
Graham cracker pie crust (this is the one ingredient I don't make myself. The Keebler ones are great)

Directions
Whip 4 eggs yolks thoroughly in a mixing bowl. Add condensed milk. Blend completely. Add juice. Stir until completely blended.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Pour mixture into pie crust. Place in oven for 15 minutes.

Remove pie from oven and let cool (put in the refrigerator)

Topping
One cup heavy whipping cream
One tablespoon sugar (the original recipe called for 1 1/2  but that was way too sweet imo)

Pour whipping cream into mixing bowl and add sugar. Using a hand mixer, beat it thoroughly until it starts to stiffen and 'peak'

Stir onto cooled pie.

Serve

It is easy and delicious!

We were there for only a day last year on a cruise, but loved it and the key lime pie we had.  Thanks for the recipe!

That's my favorite dessert of all time. Publix makes a pretty good one. And the frozen Edwards KLPs are good to.
