“This Key Lime Pie recipe is from Cook's Ilustrated March 1,1997. The crust I used was Deluxe Butter Pie Pastry Dough that I have posted and Light-As-A-Cloud Whipped Cream for the topping. I had to stop myself from eating the whole pie. Prep time does not include 3 hour refrigeration time.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. Whisk zest and yolks in medium bowl until tinted light green, about 2 minutes.
  3. Beat in milk, then juice; set aside at room temperature to thicken.
  4. Pour lime filling into crust; bake until center is set, yet wiggly when jiggled, 15 to 17 minutes.
  5. Return pie to wire rack; cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least 3 hours. (Can be covered with lightly oiled or oil-sprayed plastic wrap laid directly on filling and refrigerated up to 1 day.).
