Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. 
  • Combine the graham cracker crumbs and butter in a 9-inch pie pan. Stir together until moistened and press firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the dish. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Let the crust cool completely on a wire rack, about 30 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, and lime juice until smooth. Pour the filling into the prepared crust. 
  • Baked the pie for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are set, but the center remains jiggly. 
  • Cool for 1 hour on a wire rack. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set. Top with whipped cream, lime slices, and lime zest if desired.

Notes

The required time for the pie to chill and set is 3 hours. Save some time by making the pie a day before you plan to serve it.
