Default Image

This recipe is a variation of a key lime pie flavored with tequila. Use a good quality tequila for best results. Just like when you cook with wine you never want to cook with a quality wine or tequila that you would not want to drink

Ingredients

    • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
    • 1/2 cup freshly-squeezed lime juice
    • 1/4 cup gold tequila
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons sugar
    • 3 eggs separated

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350º.

Mix the milk, lime juice, tequila, salt, 1 tablespoon of the sugar and the egg yolks until very well combined.

The reaction of the milk with the lime juice will make for a thick filling.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust.

Make meringue by beating the egg whites with the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar until stiff peaks are formed.

Top pie with meringue and bake pie for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on top

Additional Notes

A baked 9" single crust pie shell or a graham cracker crust
