Super easy "Taste of the Keys" lime pie

I absolutely love key lime pie, but hadn't been able to capture the taste of the pies we had on our trip to the Keys. When we made our way back a second time, I picked up some of Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice from a local grocery store and brought it home. Just like pumpkin pies, there are a million slight variations on the basic key lime pie recipe. In my opinion, the trick to fabulous key lime pie is in the juice! For years I was only able to find this juice at a specialty food store, but now you can find it with the lemon and lime concentrate in the juice aisle at Kroger.

Whenever there is a carry in, EmDee requests I make this for him. I sent one of these to his charity bake sale (keeping in mind that the money was going to a good cause) and several of his coworkers went together and bought it for $125! If you have a taste for key lime pie, this recipe is super easy, and if you use the right juice it's fabulous!

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of Nellie & Joe's Key Lime juice (I always add an extra dash)
3 eggs
Mix well and pour into a graham cracker pie crust.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes
Top with whipped topping if desired.
