Key Lime Bars - Like Pie But in a Square Glass Baking Dish
Made in Three Separate Steps
The graham cracker crust is mixed together and baked.
The filling is made in stages. This recipe is egg yolks only. You will not use the egg whites at all. [my dog was more than happy to eat the whites]
A regular lime was used for the zest. I peeled off a few inches of peel and chopped it up. The egg yolks are then beaten with an egg beater for 5 minutes on high speed. Once beaten, the sweetened condensed milk is then added and mixed in thoroughly. Then, I added the bottle of Key Lime juice, just until it was mixed.
Pour into the prepared shell of graham cracker crust. Bake once again for 20 minutes. Then, let cool and enjoy.
For the Filling - Part One:
- 6 egg yolks
- lime zest
For the Filling - Part Two:
- 2 cans sweetened condensed milk
For the Filling - Part Three:
- key lime juice
For the Crust:
- graham crackers, ground
- 2 sticks melted butter
- 2/3 cup sugar
The crust is mixed and baked first. 350 degrees. 8 minutes. The baked crust is sat aside until the egg mixture is ready.
Grind up crackers. Mix in sugar. Add butter. Stir. Press into glass baking dish. I used a large glass dish and a smaller glass dish.
