Key Lime Pie

I love Key Lime Pie.  There have been many birthdays where i've had key lime pie instead of a cake.  It's one of my favorites.

Here are two very important things to know about key lime pie.

#1: Key lime pie should NEVER been green.  If it is, run far far away.
#2: Nellie & Joe's is the best key lime juice to use.  Don't use store brand.  It's not worth it.

Key Lime Pie:
(Nellie & Joe's)

9" graham cracker pie crust
14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks
½ cup Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Juice

Combine milk, egg yolks and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Pour filling into pie crust and bake at 350º for 15 minutes. Allow to stand 10 minutes before refrigerating. 

Just before serving, top with freshly whipped cream and garnish with lime slices.
