Key Lime Pie

Evening - or at least it is here in Australia.

I have been fasinated in Key Lime Pie ever since I saw one of the characters on the show 'Dexter' trying to find the best KLPie and when I found some Key Lime Juice at USA Foods Australia I couldn't go past buying some and giving the pie a go. So the recipe search began and I found a very simple recipe that has the crust and three ingredients. This is divine. If you like your dessert pies tart than this is for you. Very tarty like Lemon Meringue Pie - which is a favourite in this house too.

Too eager to eat some I forgot a photo before slicing it up.
Mmmmm yummo
Key Lime Pie
150gms Digestive Biscuits, blitzed in food processor
3 tablespoons castor sugar
1/3 cup butter, salt reduced

250g Cream Cheese (one block) do not use reduced fat
1/2 cup Key Lime Juice
1 can sweetened condensed milk.

Melt butter in the microwave and add to blitzed biscuits and sugar. Press in to pie dish and put in fridge to set a little.

Whip softened cheese with a beater (I used my food processor) to improve consistency. Add condensed milk and juice and mix until well combined. Pour over the crust and refridgerate for at least four hours.
I loved this and my hubby did too - in fact I turned around to have another piece - after I had a few pieces already and it was all gone. LOL. I am so making this again but might add some green colouring as well to really make it look like lime pie.

Hi Tracy, where did you find key lime juice, and is it the same as normal lime juice? Your pie looks delicious.
