Frozen Key Lime Pie
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
6 egg yolks or equivalent egg substitute, divided
1/2 cup Key lime juice
1 to 2 teaspoons grated Key lime zest
1 cup vanilla ice cream, softened
1 baked deep-dish 10-inch graham cracker pie crust, cooled
Beat the milk and egg yolks until thoroughly incorporated and thick, about 8 minutes. With mixer running, drizzle in lime juice and zest. Beat in ice cream. Spoon into prepared pie crust and place in freezer at least 3 hours, until set.
To serve, top with sweetened whipped cream or make a meringue with the unused egg whites, swirl on top of frozen pie, sealing edges, and bake in a 350-degree oven until tips of meringue start to brown, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.
