Coconut Key Lime Pie
Source of Recipe
1 tbsp confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
6 tbsp melted butter
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
3 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch thick rounds
Preheat the oven to 375 F degrees.
Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir in the graham
crumbs. Add the butter and mix well to moisten the crumb mixture.
Press the crumbs onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan.
Bake for 7 to 10 minutes until lightly browned. Cool the shell on
a rack; then refrigerate to set the crumbs before filling.
Combine the condensed milk, lime juice, and coconut in a bowl and
stir well. Pour the custard into the baked pie shell and refrigerate
for at least 3 hours or overnight for the custard to set. Garnish
the top with concentric circles of kiwifruit.
