Key Lime Pie

25 Jul

Crust:

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

2 Tablespoons sugar

6 Tbls. melted butter

Combine and press into the bottom and up sides of a lightly greased pie plate.

Bake for 5 minutes in a 350 degree oven and cool while you prepare the filling.  It’s not necessary to cool crust completely since you will be baking again anyway.

Filling:

3 egg yolks

1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

Mix these two ingredients, then stir:

1 teaspoon grated lime peel

1/2 cup fresh lime juice (fresh is best, which takes approximately 3 regular sized limes)

Pour filling into prepared crust and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Cool for about 20 minutes then refrigerate til chilled.  Serve with whipped cream.
