Oh, and did I tell you the crust has pretzels in it? Salty with the sweet and tart...ooooh yea baby! So here you go, one of my favorite, and easiest recipes posted yet. Please enjoy!
KEY LIME PIE
10 graham crackers, crushed
¾ cup pretzels, crushed
¼ cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cans sweet and condensed milk
Zest of two limes
1 cup key lime juice
4 egg yolks
1 vanilla bean
Pinch of salt
In a food processor, pulse together the crackers, pretzels, sugar, and butter.
Pulse together all of the ingredients until they just come together. Press into a 9 or 10 inch pie dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven when golden brown and let cool completely.
Combine the sweet and condensed, zest, juice, eggs, vanilla, and salt.
Pour into crust and bake for 20- 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and cool completely.
How easy was that?! I used to add a meringue to this...but I have found my favorite way to serve Key Lime pie is with just a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream.
