I have yet to master Key Lime Cheesecake - I made that the other day and burned it again. I swear it is the only thing I have ever cooked/baked that I have burned. Usually I can salvage my mess ups - but after roaching this Cheesecake twice? I am sticking with the easiest Key Lime Pie recipe ever.
For this recipe I use regular, bottled lime juice. It is easy to find and use - and although Key limes do have a distinctive taste they are near impossible to find outside of the Florida Keys.
4 egg yolks - beaten
2 cans [14 oz] sweetened condensed milk
1 cup lime juice [bottled]
1 14" unbaked graham cracker crust
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together and pour into pie crust. Place on cookie sheet for stability.
Bake for 15 minutes. Cool.
Serve garnished with whipped cream and lime slices [optional].
Some folks like to serve this with a rasberry sauce but I like just a little whipped cream.
It really is as easy as all that. Enjoy.
