Lime Pie

Lime Pie

Yield 8 + Servings

Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust:

  • 1 sleeve graham crackers (9 grahams + 1 or 2 more, if crust is too wet)
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter

Lime Filling:

  • 2 (14oz) cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp lime zest (from 1-2 limes)
  • 3/4 cup lime juice (3-4 juicy limes)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a food processor, crush graham crackers until they resemble fine crumbs. Melt butter & add to crumbs. If the crumbs are really fine and wet with butter, crush 1 or 2 more graham crackers and add just enough to the crust mixture to make it come together. Press evenly in the bottom of a pie dish. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. In a medium bowl, just before crust is done, combine all filling ingredients with a whisk until well blended & thick. Pour into hot crust & bake an additional 10-12 minutes until filling is solid when jiggled in the pan.
  3. Let cool completely. Keep refrigerated. Serve with whipped topping.
  4. *This recipe can be used for lime pie bars as well. Just press the crust into a square baking dish & half the recipe for filling; follow the rest of the steps as usual.
