20 key limes for 2$, joy!
I used to work in this restaurant and I made margarita pies daily (basically key lime pie filling but with plenty of sugar, tequila and triple sec added) so I got pretty quick at juicing key limes. But those 20 key limes I got at the store the other day took me about an hour to juice.
I would have stood there two hours if necessary, these are some good little pies!
This entry is going to be quick and straight to the point.
Quick because True Blood just came on (OMG what a tease! Can you believe it was her all along?) and next is the season premiere of Entourage (this season got bad reviews, but I’m hopeful to see what Ari and the gang get into).
And the point is this key lime pie recipe is simple and flavorful. If you buy the small pre-made graham cracker pie shells these can be made up in less than 20 minutes. I like my key lime pie tart (so that I can load up on sweet whipped cream), but if you like a sweeter pie add some sugar to the mix. Otherwise it is just key lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, and an egg. Badda bing, Badda boom and you are done (oh how I miss The Sopranos!)
