Room's Key Lime Pie. How simple can you get, with only three ingredients to mix
together and pour into a prepared graham cracker crust? The most difficult part

the regular limes which are bigger and less flavorful (but great for
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup freshly squeezed key lime juice (approximately 8-10 key limes)
4 eggs, separated - you'll only need the yolks, so reserve the egg whites for
1 9-inch prepared pie
crust (regular or graham cracker)
Whip egg yolks until thick; blend with sweetened
condensed milk. Add key lime juice, mixing only until juice is incorporated. Do
Pour into 9-inch baked pie
shell or prepared graham cracker pie crust. Chill until set; overnight is best.
Top with whipped cream if you like (we like!).
