I love making key lime pies or lemon curd pies. I get to use my micro plane to zest the limes and lemon and you inhale the fresh scent of it. Ahhh… My hands end up smelling like lime from the juice too. When making this pie DO NOT use the bottled lime juice or lemon juice. It will not taste the same. Trust me. If you zest too much lime I read that you can freeze it in ice cube trays. Not sure how that effects the flavor though. Haven’t it tried it yet.
To make this pie lighter I used a can of fat free sweetened condensed milk. I didn’t bother messing with the egg yolks. One slice of this isn’t that big, but you don’t need it because you’ll be overwhelmed by the sweetness and tartness of this pie. Sorry about the picture. The the cool whip kind of got out of hand.
