Five Ingredients Friday - Key Lime Pie

Here's an easy recipe for key lime pie that only takes a handful of ingredients:

1 15 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
4 large eggs
1/2 c strained fresh lime juice (1 doz key limes = about 1/2 c)

Preheat oven to 325. Whisk together the above ingredients until well-blended. The mixture will thicken as the citrus and milk react. Pour the filling into a graham cracker crust.
For a pie with meringue, let the unbaked pie stand at room temperature as you prepare ingredients for the meringue. Bake the pie on the center rack until just firm enough to support the meringue (about 7 min) as you beat the meringue.
Spread meringue around edges of crust, then fill in middle. Replace on center rack and bake for 20 min (or so) longer.
Let pie cool completely before refrigerating (up to a day).

Next week - one ingredient recipe!

This sounds yummy! My husband love Key Lime Pie so I'll have to try this.

Oh, and I can't wait to see what you come up with this Friday for a 1 ingredient recipe. It isn't something you buy pre-packaged is it? :)
