Anyway, to cover my nice green pie, I took out my cake decorating tips and covered it with yummy coolwhip. I loved how pretty it turned out. I put a little lime zest on top and it was just gorgeous. So here is the recipe.
Very Green Key Lime Pie
1 extra serving 9 inch graham cracker crust
2 cans of eagles brand sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 very large toothpick scoop of Wilton's Leaf Green icing color or just one tiny little toothpick dip if you want it to look more like Key Lime Pie, rather than Green Pie. LOL!!! (Its best not to be talking on the phone when you put in your coloring.)
Ok, so first beat your eggs and then add them to your eagles brand milk. Slowly pour in your juices and whisk together thoroughly. Pour immediately into the pie crust and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Just long enough to cook the eggs and set the pie. Take it out of the oven and let cool on a rack for about 30 minutes. Then place in the refrig for a couple of hours. If you need it to cool faster, than place in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Take it out and put your cool whip on the top and then your lime zest. Place back in the freezer for a little longer. ENJOY!!!! Its sweet,but tart!!!
Today, Kadie made some brownies. Ok, these are just your plain ole box brownies, but I was so proud of her. The only thing I did to help her was pour the mix into the pan. She was having a hard time holding the big bowl and scrapping it. So after struggling for a minute, I decided to help her get it into the pan rather than on the counter. She did all the reading of directions, measuring and mixing. Here she is with her baked brownies. They were the best brownies I ever tasted and even better with a big glass of milk.
