|Key Lime Pie|
A baked 9" single crust pie shell or a graham cracker crust
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup freshly-squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon gold tequila
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
3 eggs, separated
Preheat the oven to 350º.
Mix the milk, lime juice, tequila, salt, 1 tablespoon of the sugar and the egg yolks until very well combined.
The reaction of the milk with the lime juice will make for a thick filling.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust and top with a meringue made by beating the egg whites with the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar until stiff peaks are formed.
Bake pie for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
