Key Lime Pie- Sweet Treat Saturday

Keylime Pie

What you’ll need…

  • 1 baked pie shell
  • 2 cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1.2 cups key lime juice

Mix condensed milk, yolks, juice and cheese into food processor or blender. Pour into baked pie shell. Top with meringue from the egg whites and place under broiler for about 30 seconds or until lightly browned. Watch closely.

Meringue:

  • 4 egg whites
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat 4 egg whites until stiff, but still glossy. Add ½ cup sugar in small amounts, beating constantly. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla while still beating. Spread on pie, making sure that the edges of the crust are covered so that the meringue does not weep away when stored. Try not to have too many high peaks as these will brown faster under the broiler. If humidity is very high, add a pinch of cream of tartar to the egg whites before beginning to beat. Note: The addition of the cream cheese makes this pie stand up better than most key lime versions, and it adds just a subtle “what is it” to the finished product.
