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!
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? (:
