a key lime pie is a remarkably simple pie to make. there are two 
variations on it; one with eggs, one without. try both and see which you 
prefer. 
 
 
key lime pie 
 
crust: purists call for a graham cracker crust, but i prefer a nut 
crust. either is simple, or you can just buy a prepared one. 
 
1-1/2 cup  graham cracker crumbs or
1-1/2 cup  ground pecans
1 Tbsp  sugar
2 Tbsp  butter
 
add crumbs or ground nuts to pie plate; stir in sugar. melt butter and 
drizzle over all, mixing well, use a glass to 'roll out' the crust along 
the bottom of the pie plate and up the sides. bake at 350f for 10 
minutes. 
 
  filling 1 (no bake version):
1 can  (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1/2 cup  fresh key lime juice**
1 tsp  grated lime peel
2 cup  whipped cream
  lime slices (optional)
  beat sweetened condensed milk and lime juice in small mixer bowl until
  combined stir in lime peel. pour into crust; spread with whipped cream.
  refrigerate for 2 hours or until set. garnish with lime slices.
 
  filling 2:
1 can  (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3   egg yolks
1/4 cup  fresh key lime juice**
  whipped cream for garnish
 
preheat oven to 300f. 
in a mixer on low-medium speed, blend the milk and egg yolks until 
smooth. add the key lime juice and finish blending. 
gently pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake for 15 minutes. 
remove the pie from the oven and let cool for another 15 minutes before 
refrigerating. refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. serve topped 
with fresh whipped cream. 
 
**note: key limes are the little bitty ones. they are somewhat 
difficult to find outside of florida (although i can usually find them in 
the mission district here in san francisco). it usually takes about a 
dozen to make about a half-cup of lime juice. if you cannot find key 
limes, you can substitute regular limes. three medium sized regular 
limes will yield about 1/2 cup of lime juice. 
 
here's a slightly different version: 
 
key lime bars 
 
3 Tbsp  butter, softened
3 Tbsp  cream cheese
1-1/2 cup  sugar
2 large  eggs
1 large  egg yolk
3/4 cup  all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp  all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp  powdered sugar
1/3 cup  fresh key lime juice
 
preheat oven to 350f. butter an 8" square baking dish. 
to make the crust, beat butter, cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar with 
an electric mixer until light and fluffy. beat in egg yolk and gradually 
add 3/4 cup of flour. spread into baking dish using your hands (coat 
hands with 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar to prevent batter from 
sticking). bake until crust is lightly browned, about 15 minutes. 
to make the filling, beat eggs in the same bowl used to make crust. 
add remaining 1 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons of flour; beat on low speed 
until blended. add lime juice and continue beating until blended. pour 
onto warm crust and bake 15 minutes more. 
cool on a rack. cut into squares, place on serving tray and sprinkle 
with remaining powdered sugar.
