Here is a twist on a traditional Key Lime pie. This easy pie is a great dessert to make ahead of time. It is perfect on a summer’s day.

3/4 cup Key Lime Juice

Zest of 1 Lime

3 ounces Tequila

10 Egg Yolks

1 cup Sugar

8 tablespoons (1 stick) Butter, chopped

1 Graham Cracker Pie Shell

Combine the lime juice, zest, tequila, egg yolks and sugar in a large stainless steel bowl. Incorporate well. Stir mixture in the top of a double boiler with a wire whisk until thickened. Add the chopped butter, stirring well. Pour into pie shell. Refrigerate until center is firm and well set.

 

Enjoy!!!
