key lime pie...

September 14, 2011

if i had to choose my favorite new hobby (other then blogging) i would have to say it's baking! growing up my mom was always doing something crafty around the house. weather it was sewing new curtains for the kitchen, re-staining an old funky chair, or baking pies & cakes for her friends. so i guess naturally, i'm an art's n craft's lover... but it definitely took me a while to wrap my head around the meticulous aspect of baking. i mean, how fun does 1/4 cup of this and 3/4 tablespoon of that sound? before, not fun at all! i've always relied on my creativity in the kitchen or w. my daily crafts, so this new measuring thing is a whole new animal. i am however, loving the new challenges in baking, especially when the end result is so delish!

** if you're a beginner baker (like me) then try this recipe out... i couldn't be easier and the key lime pie is just SO good!

K E Y   L I M E   P I E   H O W   T O :
i n g r e d i e n t s :
graham cracker crust...
16 (3"x3") or 8 (3"x6") graham cracker squares
1/3 cup sugar
6 tablespoons of butter
bake time: 6-9 minutes at 325
key lime pie...
one 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup Neillie & Joes Key-West Lime Juice
3 egg yokes (white's not used)
one lime (for decorations)
bake time: 15 minutes at 350

d i r e c t i o n s :
{Break up graham crackers into food processor and blend}
{melt butter and add to blended graham cracker. Also add the sugar, sugar.}
{blend ingredients then pour into (greased, buttered, or Pam) pie pan}
{spread mixture evenly in (greased) pie pan and bake for 6-9 minutes at 325}
{Now combine milk, egg yokes and lime juice. Mix until smooth}

{Pour filling into crust and bake for 15 minutes at 350. Make sure to let pie sit for 10 minutes before refrigerating. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. And...... Ta-da!!}
Oh, and don't forget to pick up a fresh lime to decorate your pie with.}

 {If possible, buy this Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice... it's the best and has the recipe directly on the back of the bottle! You can find it at Bristol Farms.}

I hope you try this at home... and remember (if you're a non-baker)
