Key Lime Pie

I love a good tart dessert, and I make this key lime pie pretty tart. There's no getting around sweetened condensed coconut milk having a coconut taste, but it makes this pie interesting. My original recipe called for topping the pie with whipped cream, but it's just as nice to garnish with lime, or maybe a dusting of finely ground graham crackers and powdered sugar.

3 eggs
3/4 cup - 1 cup fresh lime juice (1 cup makes it tart!)
1/2 - 1 tsp. freshly grated lime peel
1 recipe Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk
1 Graham Cracker Pie Crust
Thinly sliced lime for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs until well-blended. Gradually add the lime juice, lime peel and coconut milk. Blend well. Spoon into prepared pie crust. Bake 20 minutes or until almost set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cover loosely and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Garnish with thinly sliced lime.
