We start baking our classic key lime pie around Saint Patrick’s Day, which is a huge celebration day in Savannah. The pie has a pleasing almost green hue, and the fresh taste is a great reminder that winter is almost over and summer will be here in the blink of an eye. Serve a big dollop of whipped cream on every slice.

Ingredients

Method

Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 325°F. Place the baked pie shell on a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed milk, heavy cream, vanilla, and egg yolks until smooth. Add the lime zest and lime juice and whisk until combined.
