directions

  • 1

    Mix crumbs, sugar and melted butter together and press evenly on sides and bottom of a 10-inch pie pan.

  • 2

    Bake crust 10 minutes in a 325 degree oven. Set aside while making the filling.

  • 3

    In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk until smooth.

  • 4

    Add the key lime juice. It is important to add the lime juice last because the acid of the juice will curdle the egg yolks if added sooner.

  • 5

    Pour lime mixture into baked pie shell and bake 15 to 20 minutes in a 325 degree oven.

  • 6

    Cool at room temperature. Then refrigerate overnight, or at least 5 hours.

    TO SERVE:

  • 8

    Cut cold pie and set on individual dishes.

  • 9

    Garnish with fresh lime wedges. Squeeze the wedge over the pie for a more intense citrus flavor.
