                  Jessie's Heirloom Key Lime Pie

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 8-11 Nov 2005

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
5 eggs -- separated
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup Key lime juice
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup sugar -- for meringue
1 baked pie shell, 9 inches

Separate eggs into three bowls - 5 yolks in one bowl, 2 egg whites in
another and 3 egg whites in the third. This is the most important
step in the whole operation.

Cream egg yolks, add 3/4 cup sugar and lime juice and mix thoroughly.
Cook over low heat until thick, add butter and remove from heat. Let
cool slightly.

Meanwhile beat two egg whites until stiff, then fold into cooled lime
mixture. Fill baked 9 inch pie shell.

Beat other whites until stiff. Beat in 1/4 cup sugar. Pile meringue on
top of lime filling and bake at 325 degrees F. for 15 minutes.

Jessie's Story from a Hospice Nurse: Several years ago I treated a
young man from Key West, Florida who was dying of AIDS. A couple of
weeks before he died, he gave me his 75 year old family recipe for Key
Lime Pie. He explained that most Key Lime Pie recipes use condensed
milk. Even restaurants in Key West serve Key Lime Pie made with
condensed milk. Jessie was disdainful of this version. His family
recipe, passed from generation to generation, does not used condensed
milk. Jessie claimed it is the only authentic Key Lime Pie recipe. So
in memory of Jessie, I offer it to you. Please keep story with
Jessie's recipe. It is the only condition for sharing a great recipe.
Thanks. Recent note: The pie has become the favorite of many since
Philocrates first saved it from a newsletter and posted it on the net.
It always gets a five star rating.
