Tasty Tuesday-The Best Key Lime Pie




It is true. This is the best recipe and juice for a key lime pie. Really. We tested several while we were in Key West, so trust me on this one. I have to say that I can take zero credit for this. Our first trip to Key West inspired my mom to buy Kermit's Key West Key Lime Juice and make a pie since we thought Kermit's had the best and sold the goods to make it. I have only made about three pies so far with the juice, taking after my mom...so I have to give her credit for a)finding the juice and b)becoming famous amongst friends and family for it. She is the key lime pie queen. 
Since I will soon be sharing my Key adventures, I thought it was only appropriate to share with you something you can really take away. You can buy the juice here. You're welcome. The recipe is on the back label, but it goes something like this:

1/2 cup of Kermit's juice
6 egg yolks
2 cans Eagle brand milk
1 graham pie crust
Mix together well. Pour into crust. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes. Pop into refrigerator to chill. Eat. Die happy. 
Do not try to make this with lime juice. Make it with the good stuff. Don't be foolish.




Sorry, Mom, for outing the secret ingredient. I feel like that dog on the Bush's Baked Bean commercial.
