Thursday Recipe Exchange: Birthday Treats

Alas I have no pie photos, but I do have Key Lime Bars.

This will be an abbreviated recipe exchange. Thursday surprised me this week, mostly because I have a short work week, second week in a row, so I have no idea if I’m coming or going trying to get everything accomplished before I take a day off. And why am I taking yet another day off? Because my birthday is Sunday and I decided to make a long weekend of it.

So when the food blogger makes her birthday treat, what does she choose? Key Lime Pie.

What do you do for you birthday? Are you a cake person, and if so, what’s your favorite? Or do you like something different?

Key Lime Pie

So easy, yet sooo good!

  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 6 tbsp Key limejuice*
  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • 9 inch graham cracker pie crust
  • 4 oz real cream whipped topping
  • 1 lime, sliced

Preheat oven to 250°

Combine milk & yolks with mixer until well blended. Add limejuice and zest, mix well. Pour into pie shell. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool, then spread whipped topping over the top, garnish with lime slices, and refrigerate until served.

* you can substitute regular limejuice if needed.
