Perfect for Summer - Key Lime Pie

It's not that I need balmy breezes and summer sun to inspire citrus desserts and bevvies, but it sure does help! This recipe is incredibly quick, a perfect blend of tart and sweet, and is a sure hit for entertaining al fresco. We've gone through two pies in the last 9 days!


1 cup ground almonds
1 cup graham crumbs (I used gluten free)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp pure vanilla

Pie Filling:

1 can sweetened condensed milk
5 egg yolks
150 ml freshly squeezed lime juice

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, combine ground almonds, graham crumbs, vanilla and butter.
3. Press crust mixture into an 8 inch pie pan.
4. In a separate bowl, gently whisk together condensed milk and egg yolks. Mix in lime juice.
5. Pour pie filling on to crust and bake for 25 minutes.
