Pensacola Key Lime Pie - recipe from The Fish House in Pensacola Florida. Seriously THE BEST Key Lime Pie recipe. Everyone raves about this pie! Homemade graham cracker crust, key lime juice, eggs, sweetened condensed milk. Can top with meringue or fresh whipped cream. Either way is delicious! SO simple, but SO good!! This never lasts long and everyone wants the recipe!
Crust: Combine all ingredients and press against sides and bottom of 9-inch springform pan. (I use a measuring cup to do this - works great!)
Filling: Whisk together Key lime juice, sweetened condensed milk and egg yolks. Pour into prepared crust and bake for 10 minutes.
Meringue: While the pie bakes, in the bowl of an electric mixer, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on HIGH until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on HIGH until stiff peaks form.
Remove pie from oven. Carefully spread meringue on top of pie. Return to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes, or until meringue tips start to brown.
