The second half of my day’s adventures in pies–Key Lime Pie! Burnt out from making the banana cream pies in my too-small kitchen, I used a prepared pie crust. This recipe is very, very easy! Really, anyone could make this. I didn’t even have to write down the recipe! I halved it and ended up with six miniature pies, and they all disappeared within the day (Joseph had four, I had two). I think I’ll keep this around as a go-to when we’re craving easy sweets.

Key Lime Pie from

1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust (or 12 miniature ones)

3 cups sweetened condensed milk

½ cup sour cream

¾ cup key lime juice

1 Tbs grated lime zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, combine condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice, and lime rind. Mix well and pour into graham cracker crust.

Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 8 minutes, until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of pie. Chill pie thoroughly before serving. Garnish with lime slices and whipped cream if desired.
