Cool Recipes and Ideas for Hot Weather!

  • easy pie crust recipe (or store bought graham cracker crust)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine the sweetened condensed milk, the egg yolks and the lime juice in a mixing bowl. Blend the ingredients until they are smooth and pour into a pre-baked pie shell or a graham cracker crust pie shell.

Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and removed without the filling sticking to it. Allow the pie to cool completely before serving.

If using the easy pie crust recipe, bake the pie shell first. Place tin foil over the edge of the pie crust so that the crust edges don't become to brown.

Use a fork to poke a few holes in the bottom of the pie crust to release the air bubbles that will form when baking. You can also place a small baking dish in the center of the pie crust to prevent it from rising from the surface of the pie plate while cooking.

When planning a summer menu for a party or as part of your spring picnic ideas, include other easy summer foods such as a grilled chicken salad, or best potato salad recipe, just to name a few.
