Servings 8 People

Equipment

  • Pie pan

Ingredients
  

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 2 cups Cinnamon Graham Crackers
  • 6 tbsp Melted Butter

Key Lime Filling

  • 1 14.5 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 cup Key Lime Juice (or regular limes)
  • 1 tsp Lime Zest
  • 4 Large Egg Yolks
  • 1 Large Egg
  • Whipping Cream Topping

Instructions
 

Graham Cracker Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit
  • Add crumbled graham cracker and 6 tbsps melted butter to a medium bowl and mix until all the cracker crumbles have been coated.
  • Once coated, add graham cracker crumbs to your ungreased pie pan and press into a crust. Biggest issue to make sure there are no holes.
  • Bake for about 8-10 minutes until golden brown not burned. Set aside to cool for about 10-12 minutes. Keep oven preheated.

Key Lime Filling

  • In a separate bowl, add sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice, lime zest, large egg yolks, and large egg. Once combined, pour into your cooled pie crust and then bake in the oven for about 14-15 minutes. You want the filling to set, basically wiggle like jello and not pour out of the pan.
  • Once your filling is set, take out of the oven and cool for 1 hour.
  • After your pie is completely cooled, place the pie, uncovered, in the fridge for 3 hours. Then serve with lime zest and whip cream!
