Key Lime Pie

Four ingredients are all you need to master this classic hot weather dessert.  I thought about "dolling up" this presentation with a tuft of whipped cream, a few raspberries or even a curl of fresh lime, but then I decided against it.  This cold and tangy pie is perfect, as shown.  Eat and enjoy!   

Key Lime Pie

1/2 cup key lime juice
1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
4 egg yolks
1 graham cracker pie crust

Stir sweetened condensed milk and egg yolks together.  While stirring, slowly pour in key lime juice.  Pour mixture into pie crust and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Allow to cool and then refrigerate a few hours to allow flavor to develop.

*Note: Are you traveling down South this winter?  A bottle of key lime juice is a great gift to bring back from your trip, just pack it in a Ziploc bag in your suitcase.
