Sweet Paul is back!
I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that left all the sweet comments for me. It really helped me in a very difficult time in my life.
So again, Thank you.
This monday Im giving you something that is like life itself, a little sweet and a little sour.
A lime pie.
I love the sour and sweet taste of this pie, its kinda an explosion in your mouth.
And if you serve it a la mode or with a dash of creme fraiche, its even better.
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 stick cold butter cut into pieces
2 tablespoons ice cold water
1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon rind
For the crust:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix flour and sugar; slowly work butter into the flour to create a grainy-like mixture.
Add water and continue kneading the dough to mix.
Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Roll out on a floured surface and place in a buttered pie tin.
Bake for 10 minutes.
For the filling:
Mix together condensed milk, egg yolks, lime juice and rind.
Pour into the pie crust and bake for another 15 minutes or until set.
Cool and serve.
