If you’ve ever felt intimidated when it comes to producing pies, this crucial lime pie is a great starting point. Not only is the homemade crust simple to make, but the filling is just 3 substances (yes, 3!) and it only takes a number of minutes to mix collectively.
An added bonus? Considering that this pie wants to chill for a although in the refrigerator, it’s a excellent recipe that you can make ahead of time.
To make this important lime pie, you’ll start off out with my homemade graham cracker crust recipe which is just a basic mixture of graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. I put together a tutorial here to show you specifically how to make a graham cracker crust.
You’ll want to pre-bake the crust for ten minutes and then allow it great for one more 10 minutes even though you make the filling. I’ve found that giving the crust some time to awesome and firm up prior to you include the filling creates a sturdier crust that holds up greater. So, once you consider the crust out of the oven set it aside and mix up your filling.
The filling is just a easy mixture of crucial lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, and egg yolks. If you want to make this recipe effortless, I suggest sticking with bottled important lime juice. As a lot as I enjoy employing fresh juice anytime I can, essential limes are so small that it will take permanently to get 1 cup of juice. I’ve used bottled juice for this pie numerous instances and it tastes just as excellent as fresh juice. I actually really like Nellie and Joe’s Crucial Lime Juice, you can generally discover it by the juices in most grocery shops.
You will also have really a number of egg whites left over that you can both discard or save and use for some thing else. I really love making use of additional egg whites to make these candied pecans.
As soon as you mix up the filling, you’ll pour it onto the somewhat cooled pie crust and bake it for about 20 minutes. The top of the pie will seem set, but it will still be jiggly when you take it out of the oven. The residual heat will proceed to cook the pie and allow it to set up as it cools.
And last, but not least, you’ll want to prime this pie with some whipped cream to stability out the tartness of the filling. You can either use whipped topping or my homemade whipped cream recipe.
