Key Lime Pie

Pin It

11 graham crackers, or 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
3 tsp sugar
5 tbsp margarine (melted)

Crush the graham crackers in food processor. Pour into 9″ pie pan. Stir in sugar. Add in melted margarine. Press firmly into pan and up the sides. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes.

While crust is cooking, beat together 4 egg yolks and 2 tsp. lime zest. Beat in 1 can sweetened condensed milk. Stir in 1/3 cup lime juice. Pour into baked crust and bake at 325 for another 15 minutes.

Let cool to room temperature and refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.

If you really want a treat, bake this in an aluminum pan. Poke popsicle sticks into the outside of the pan, so that they will be through each individual piece. Freeze. Once frozen, cut into slices and remove from pan (leaving sticks intact). Dip each piece in melted chocolate chips (mixed with 1 tsp shortening) or dipping chocolate. This makes a delicious frozen chocolate dipped treat.
