Key lime pie

Being from Florida, it was only a matter of time before I blogged about our state pie, key lime pie. This delicious treat uses the tart key limes that can be found in the Florida keys. If you google key lime pie, you can find a bunch of different recipes. As far as I'm concerned, there are only three things you need; key lime juice, sweeten condensed milk, and egg yokes. Any recipe that tries to make it more complicated is not a key lime pie. You can buy the juice in a bottle or take the tiny fruit and squeeze your own. Either way its delicious. For my pie I addde some strawberries for something a little different.

Strawberry Key Lime Pie

1- 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice
3 egg yokes
1 cup sliced strawberries
graham cracker crust ( I usually buy one because making one isn't really worth it)

1. Whisk together the egg yokes and condensed milk. Keep mixing whilst adding the lime juice a little at a time. 

2. Spread the strawberries at the bottom of the crust. Pour lime mixture over the strawberries.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove and let cool for several hours.

4. Top with whip cream, slice, and enjoy!
