Key Lime Pie

yippee! finally one of my baking exploits that turned out to be successful ^^ haha okay not that i had a lot of failed ones, but last’s week’s attempt at a matcha marble cake was just an ultimate disappointment, and that’s always kinda demoralising :( 
which is why i’m so glad that my key lime pie turned out so yummy this time, and i’m posting it immediately :D hehe. *slurrrrrps*
i’m just really bad at making my food look pretty though, so maybe it doesn’t look awesome. but the taste is great ;) super unhealthy though :P but TOTALLY worth the calories. i was drooling while making the pie crust because the digestive biscuits smelled soooo mouth-watering!!! :D what i love about this recipe is its simplicity. it’s definitely one of the easiest things i’ve ever made! only two steps!
Ingredients:
300g digestive biscuits
150g butter, melted
397g can of condensed milk
3 medium egg yolks
finely grated zest and juice of 6 limes 
1. Heat the oven to 160 deg C. Place the digestive biscuits in a ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to pound them to crumbs. Mix with the melted butter and press into the base and up the sides of a tart tin. Bake in the oven for 10min. Remove and cool.
2. Put the egg yolks in a large bowl and whisk them. Add the condensed milk and whisk again for 3 minutes, add the zest and juice and whisk for another 3 minutes. Pour the filling into the cooled base and pop it back into the oven for 15 minutes. Remove, allow it to cool, then chill for at least 3 hours before serving.
a piece of pie for anyone? (:
