(Not Really Key) Lime Pie



Spring in Kansas – it’s true that you just never know what you’re going to get. Every once in awhile - in between that barometric see-saw of cold snaps, then hot and dreadfully humid thunderstorms, then gloomy chilly days- you get that gorgeous day. Sunny, not a cloud in the sky, temps in the low 70s. Just beautiful.

We had one of those days recently, and believe me they are cherished when they show up. I rushed home from work and threw open all the windows. When Hubs got off work, we did our usual warm-weather ritual and went up to campus for a long walk up and down The Hill. Well, okay I should be honest it’s our second-most-common ritual - the first being walking Mass St. and having a beer on the patio at Free State, but I wasn’t quite up for that one this year…

Anyhoo, nice weather just makes a person hungry for certain things, so we both agreed on salads for dinner. But I was also craving something sweet and tart, one of those cravings for dessert you get on a beautiful day. And I knew the perfect dessert. So when we stopped at the grocery store on the way home to grab salad goodies, I also picked up a can of sweetened condensed milk and a bunch of limes. Nothing celebrates the warm weather like a lime pie.



Notice I didn’t say “key lime”, that’s because I rarely use key limes when making this pie. No worries. It is still delicious, I assure you. This recipe rocks because it is not only easy (I pretty much have it memorized), but it is incredibly quick. Hubs took a shower when we got home from our walk, and by the time he walked back into the kitchen to help with salads I was pulling the finished pie out of the oven to cool.

It really is your classic lime pie – sweet and yet tart tart tart, creamy and cool with a nice crunchy crust. Perfect. You can, you know, ruin it by adding a meringue topping or whipped cream if you’d like, but I think it’s just right on its own.


(Not Really Key) Lime Pie
(from Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook, 2005)



Ingredients:
For crust:
1 1/4 c. graham cracker crumbs, fine ground
1 Tbsp. sugar
5 Tbsp. salted butter, melted

For filling:
4 large egg yolks
1 Tbsp. lime zest (I probably used more like 2 Tbsp. We love the tart)
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. fresh lime juice (about 4 limes’ worth)

Prepare the crust: In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Stir in melted butter (I add this with my hands, but a wooden spoon will do fine). Press evenly into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Bake off the crust for 10 minutes at 325 F. Cool completely.

Prepare the filling: In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat the yolks and lime zest until smooth. Beat in the milk, then slowly beat in the lime juice. Beat mixture continuously until smooth.

Pour the filling into the prepared crust. Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature, then place in the fridge to cool until set (about 2 hours).

This lime pie looks delicious. Warm weather makes me crave creamy citrus, too!! Mmm, I'm totally going to need one of these pies now.

I tried the cookies today 'Cherry Almond Jello Cookies'. To my dismay the dough was too thick to press in the cookie press. Did I do something wrong? What is the best way to remedy that? I ended up putting the dough in the press to shape a cylinder then cut them into rounds. They baked wonderfully but I was disappointed that I couldn't make the pretty shapes.

I just whipped this up and it was very easy to make. The longest part was zesting the lime. I have not tasted the final product, but it tasted wonderful before I placed it in the stove. Thanks for the recipe. I also used cinnamon and sugar graham crackers for the crust to add a little panache and it blended with lime flavor nicely.

Unknown said...

As a follow-up, the finished product is even more delicious then the precooked and refrigerated sampling. It is the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness. I have made other recipes with real Key lime and found that it could be too tart and sweet. The lime zest really adds a necessary accent to the pie is just enough to be noticed and appreciated. I also used fat-free condensed milk without compromising the richness in flavor. Hats off to you, again. Thank you for sharing such a wonderfully simple and delicious recipe.
