    Talking Key Lime Pie (A.K.A. My Lazy Cheesecake recipe)

    2 cups Graham Wafer Crumbs
    2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
    ½ cup Melted Butter
    250 grams Cream Cheese
    One 300 mL can Condensed Milk
    ⅓ cup Key Lime Juice **
    250 mL Sour Cream

    ** can substitute for other fruit juices, I normally use regular lime juice but I have used Blood orange juice. I have even put in Bailey's and other drinks for a different taste.

    Crust
    • Preheat oven to 350°
    • Combine crumbs, sugar and butter. Mix well.
    • Press into 10 inch pie plate.
    • Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.

    Filling
    • Mix cream cheese and condensed milk until smooth.
    • Blend in lime juice.
    • Beat in sour cream until smooth.
    • Pour into cooled crust and chill for 2 hours.
    • May garnish with lime peel.

    Sorry! I put the units as I buy them so I remember how much!

    No pictures. On a diet so I can't make some of my favorite recipes.

    But when I am done.....

    Not feeling the love for the sour cream and cream cheese, but I am a traditionalist when it comes to Key Lime pie. The biggest fight you get down here is cracker crumb crust vs. regular pie crust and whipped cream vs. meringue. I prefer crackers and whipped cream. Jimmy Buffett goes the piecrust/meringue route in his restaurant, but he is from Biloxi, so what does he know? Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk is required and real Key Lime juice, which was not readily available even in Florida until a scant couple of decades ago, makes all of the difference. Persian limes just don't do the trick.
