Frozen Key Lime Pie

Hands down my favorite dessert is key lime pie –(remember last year when I ordered 13 pounds of key lime pies by accident). And so I decided to start off the week on a sweet note by making key lime pie — but not just any key lime pie, but FROZEN key lime pie. The recipe is from Barefoot Contessa and is so stinking easy that I hope I dont start making it every week just to have in the kitchen…..

 

(Pre frozen — I couldn’t stop myself, it is that good)

 

Ingredients:

For the crust:
* 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (10 crackers)

* 1/4 cup sugar

* 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted

 

For the Filling:

* 6 extra-large egg yolks, at room temperature

* 1/4 cup sugar

* 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

* 2 tablespoons grated lime zest

* 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

 

For the top:

* 1 cup (1/2 pint) cold heavy cream

* 1/4 cup sugar

* 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

* Thin lime wedges

 

 

Directions:

 

preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Smoosh the grah

Then press it down in to pie pan. Same even thickness.

 

* Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

 

When the crust is baking, mix together 6 egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture is thick.

Add lime juice, condensed milk, and zest.

And whisk it all together.

 

Pour into the baked pie shell and freeze.

 

Pre frozen.

After it is slightly frozen (I left it for a couple hours in the freezer), make the whipped cream.

Spread it evenly on the pie. And add some decorations, because WHY NOT.

 

Freeze for several hours or overnight. And if you don’t finish, put back in freezer for the next time you want it! Highly recommend this recipe — so delicious and so easy!
