Ingredients

  • Filling
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • cup sweetened condensed milk
  • Crust
  • 4 whole graham crackers, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • whipped topping (optional)

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and lime zest until the mixture has a light green tint.
  • Whisk in the condensed milk until smooth and then whisk in the lime juice.
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to allow it to thicken.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. and using a food processor add in the graham crackers and process until you have a fine crumb mixture.
  • Add the melted butter, sugar, and continue to pulse until incorporated and the mixture clumps together.
  • Place the crust mixture into a 6-inch pie plate and press in the bottom and sides in a flat even layer.
  • Bake the crust only until it is lightly browned and fragrant, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and while still warm add the filling.
  • Place the pie in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until firm around the edges.
  • Transfer the pie to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
  • Place in the refrigerator to allow the pie to become chilled and set.
  • Serve with whipped topping.
