Key Lime Pie

Baker's Square Copycat Recipe

TO MAKE THE FILLING: Whisk lime zest and yolks together. Add the lime juice and milk and let the mixture stand for about 5 minutes. Pour into cooled graham cracker crust. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes. Chill overnight.

TO SERVE: Top with whipped cream, OR make

OPTIONAL MERINGUE: Make meringue from 4 leftover egg whites, bake pie for 7 minutes, remove from oven and spread meringue, then bake 20-25 more till meringue is browned.
