Key Lime Pie (from Gourmet Sleuth)
Real Key lime pie is not green and it does not have a soft "pudding" texture. The pie gets its true pale yellow color from the egg yolks that predominate the ingredient list. And the texture is a "firm custard".
"This is a nice, simple recipe and the flavor is great. Exactly what I think key lime pie should be. I used a pre made crust and canned whipped cream and it was awesome. Next time I'll make my own crust and whipping cream instead of cutting corners with the pre made stuff.

Key Lime Pie (from Gourmet Sleuth) Preparation
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients and press into 9" pie plate. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Place on rack to cool.
Beat egg yolks with electric mixer until thick and turn light yellow (DO NOT over mix). Add condensed milk. Mix on low adding half the lime juice. Once incorporated, add remaining juice and zest and continue to mix until blended (a few seconds). Pour mixture into pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes to set yolks and kill any salmonella in eggs.
Serve with dollop of prepared whipping cream garnish.
Best to use lime squeezer to extract juice. Do not overcook or will become rubbery. Crush graham crackers in large ziploc bag to avoid messy clean-up.
