Key Lime Pie

I got this recipe from Southern Living magazine and made it for my daughter's birthday instead of a cake.  It was so easy and tasted wonderful, even my husband liked it and he's not a big fan of pies or sweets in general.  I need to pick up some egg substitutes this week  and I'm going to make it again.

Key Lime Pie

Don't be tempted to substitute bottled lime juice—it doesn't compare to fresh.

Other Time: 4 hours 27 minutes minutes
Yield:  Makes 8 servings

1 (14-oz.) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup egg substitute
1/2 cup fresh Key lime juice*
2 teaspoons Key lime zest*
1 (6-oz.) reduced-fat ready-made graham cracker crust
1 (8-oz.) container fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
Garnish: lime peel strips
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together first 4 ingredients until well blended. Pour mixture into piecrust; place pie on a baking sheet.
2. Bake at 350° for 17 minutes or until pie is set. Remove pie from baking sheet to a wire rack, and let pie cool completely (about 1 hour).
3. Chill 3 to 24 hours. Top with whipped topping just before serving. Garnish, if desired.
*Regular fresh lime juice and zest may be substituted.
Try it with Lemon! Substitute fresh lemon juice for lime juice and lemon zest for lime zest.

Saturday in the Swamp

Beautiful cold day here, down to 36º last night and only expected to reach 60º today, but the sky is blue and it looks wintery. Lots to get...
