Key West Road Trip

May 16th, 2011 · No Comments

So what makes us get in the car and drive hours to the very southern tip of the United States? Oh, there are so many good reasons…

Alcohol for starters at a little roadside cafe for breakfast

Girls riding in convertibles are very cool

It's colorful and fun

Key Lime Pie is our favorite!

Fish House Key Lime Pie

MAKES ONE PIE

FOR THE PIE:
4 egg yolks
1 (15 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh key lime juice
1 (9 inch) graham cracker crust

FOR THE MERINGUE:
4 eggs whites
4 tbsp sugar

1. Combine egg yolks and condensed milk. Mix together well. Add key lime juice and mix well again. Pour mixture into pie shell.

2. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, slowly adding sugar. Spread the mixture onto the pie all the way to the edge of the crust. Create peaks using back of a wooden spoon.

3. Bake in pre-heated, 300-degree oven until meringue is light brown. Cool before serving.
