Cuisine American
Servings 10 Mgr's cut, 8 Chef's Cut, 6 Family cut

Ingredients
  

  • 7 ea Egg yolks *use egg whites to make merengue! or freeze for up to 3 months for other recipes.
  • 2 ea Eagle Sweet condensed milk 14.5 oz can
  • 1 cup Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Juice
  • ¾ tsp Cornstarch
  • 2 ea 10" Graham Cracker pie shell cut recipe in half for 9" shell

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 250℉
  • Separate yolks. It's best to do this at egg's coldest temp. In mixing bowl, beat yolks on medium-high until they are pale yellow and firm.
  • Turn of the mixer, and add in the condensed milk. Blend eggs & milk on low for minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if necessary, then turn the mixer back on low.
  • Dissolve cornstarch into Key Lime juice, and slowly add into the egg/milk mix until fully combined.
  • Pour 1 lb. of mixture into each graham cracker shell. Any remaining mix, pour into a Pyrex dish to have as a snack for being a such a hard-working Cheffie.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Pies should be solid, just the slightest "shake".
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool on a rack. Place in the fridge to serve same day, or freezer to store. From frozen, allow 30-45 minutes to thaw.
  • Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
