Key Lime Pie first originated in Key West in America, but has become a firm favourite here in Australia. Key Lime Pie is delicious and creamy this is one of the yummiest desserts I have had in ages! 

 

 

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Grease loose bottomed flan tin.

  2. Roll the dough out between two sheets of baking paper until it is large enough to fit into the tin.

  3. Remove the top sheet of paper and place the pastry into the tin.

  4. Gently press the pastry into the tin, allowing any excess to hang over the sides. With a sharp knife trim away any extra pastry.

  5. Line the pastry shell with a piece of crumpled baking paper that is large enough to cover the base and side of the tine and pour in some baking beads or rice.

  6. Bake for 10 minutes, remove the paper and beads and return the pastry to the oven for another 4-5 minutes, or until the base is dry. Leave to cool.

  7. Beat the egg yolks, condensed milk, lime juice and zest in a large bowl for 2 minutes, or until well combined. Pour into the pie shell and smooth the surface.

  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until set. Allow the pie to cool, then refrigerate for 2 hours, or until well chilled.

  9. Decorate with lime slices, dust with sifted icing sugar and serve with whipped cream.
