How to cook

  1. To Make Key Lime Filling
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and lime zest until light and fluffy. The more you whisk the lighter your pie will be, the less you whisk, the denser it will be.
  3. Slowly stream in all of the condensed milk. Whisk in the lime juice using a rubber spatula, transfer the mixture to your pie crust,
  4. Bake at 325°F for 8–10 minutes until just barely set.
  5. To Make Chantilly Cream
  6. Whip together the cream, vanilla, and sugar to soft peaks. Cover and place in the fridge until the pie is ready to go!
  7. Once the pie is baked, place in the fridge to chill for at least 1 hour. Once cooled, top with Chantilly cream and lime zest.
