Kitchen trip to the Keys: Too easy lime pie

Last week, we took a trip to the Keys. At least, that's what it tasted like.

My mom found an incredibly easy and delicious recipe for Key lime pie. We tried it once ourselves, then made it again to share! The second time, I doubled the recipe, and it still turned out.

Ingredients:
1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup Key lime juice (about 10-15 Key limes)
1 tablespoon grated lime zest

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grate lime peel to make zest. Squeeze limes to make juice. 


Combine condensed milk and sour cream.


Mix well. Then mix in lime juice and zest.


Pour into prepared crust. Bake for 8 minutes, "until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of pie." Do not brown.



Serve chilled. Top with whipped cream if desired.


Enjoy! I know we did.
