    Anyone have any good recipes for a Key Lime Pie? I love them but I have never attempted to make one myself, so a simple recipe would be best to start.

    I have a easier way to make a key lime pie :

    ¾ cup key lime juice

    2 (14 oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk

    1 tablespoon key lime zest

    ½ cup sour cream

    1 prepared 9″ graham cracker pie crust Garnish (cool whip, sliced key limes & zest)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    · Juice real key limes. Set aside.

    · In a bowl, add sweetened condensed milk.

    · Add in key lime juice. (If you are using lime zest add that in now as well)

    · Add in sour cream & stir until combined.

    · Pour mixture into crust & spread evenly.

    · Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set (tiny pinhole bubbles may burst on the surface of the pie). Do not brown the pie.

    · Remove from oven & chill completely before garnishing & serving. Garnish with sliced key limes, cool whip & key lime zest if desired.

    I have never seen sour cream in one before. Does it change the texture? Taste? I am going to give this a try.
