Pioneer Woman: Key Lime (or Lemon) Pie

Peter usually asks for Lemon Meringue Pie for his birthday (his Nanny's recipe). I noticed that Pioneer Woman's Key Lime Pie is almost the exact same recipe, so for June, I made a twist on PW/Nanny's pie recipes! 


Creamy Lemon Meringue Pie
(Nanny's recipe)

3 egg yolks
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice


Key Lime Pie 
(Pioneer Woman's recipe)

1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 egg yolks
1 T lime zest
1/2 cup lime juice

Graham Cracker Crust

15 whole graham crackers (the 4 section rectangles)
1/2 stick butter (melted)
1/4 cup sugar

In food processor, pulse crackers into fine crumbs. Add butter, and sugar. Mix together; pour into pie plate. Press into shape. Bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool.

Make filling and put into cooled crust.

I used the 3 egg yolks, milk, and lemon juice, and made PW graham cracker crust.
PW recipe calls for whipped topping if desired, but Peter loves meringue on this pie.

Meringue: 

4 egg whites

beat until peaks form

slowly add in 1/2 cup sugar (1 T at a time)

beat until stiff peaks

put on top of filling and seal.

Bake for 15-18 minutes.
