To begin, simply mix the sugar, cornstarch, and kosher salt in a heavy saucepan, while separately whisking your eggs and hand-and-half in another bowl. Next, gradually pour your egg mixture into your sugar mixture, and bring it all to a boil over a medium heat while stirring constantly. Boil for about one minute, and then remove the mixture from the heat. After that’s complete, be sure to stir in your butter and Key lime zest until it’s all blended. Then, slowly whisk in the Key lime juice until it’s all combined nicely. Pour all of your mixed ingredients into a metal bowl, and then place it on ice. Lastly, just let your fixings stand for about 10 minutes or until the mixture is slightly thickened. No one will ever know how little time you spent on this glorious Southern treat.
