Key Lime Pie- Back to School time!!!!!

It's back to school time!!!!  Here I am today with a delicious mouth watering recipe of lime Pie. My daughter who is a big fan of limes and lemon always asks for a key lime pie whenever we go to eat out. For the summer vacations, she was asking me to make one and the time went by doing a lot of things other than this Lime Pie.

On the first day of school, I want to surprise her and so I made this easy, simple pie which can be done within no time. The best key lime pie ever. A bit tart, a bit sweet and an incredibly easy dish which will be your family's favorite.

The buttery graham cracker crumbs is beautifully baked into a crust and filled to the brim with an incredibly creamy filling of a combination of yolks, condensed milk, lime juice and lime zest, that is so quick to make.

A perfect balance of tart and sweet will make this pie an incredible dessert to serve for any occasion. The only hard work involved in making this dish is to squeeze the lime but that's worth. The store bought lime juice, will make the pie loose it's authenticity. Hope you all might like this. Please try this recipe and let me know how it turned out.
