We adapted Martha's key lime pie recipe. Very much adapted. We basically used it as a guideline and then threw it out the window. Because of the said meringue and because we made a coconut crust. Because what goes better with lime than coconut? Nothing. I rest my case.
3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
4 T butter, melted
1 T sugar
1/2 cup fresh squeezed key lime juice
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
4 large egg yolks
1 T grated lime zest, plus more for garnish
4 large egg whites
2 T sugar
9 inch pie pan
First mix together the crust ingredients and press down into the pie pan.
