Total Time: 235 Minutes, Servings: 1 Servings

Ingredients :
    FOR THE CRUST:
  • 1 ¼ cup graham cracker crumbs (or 1 sleeve graham crackers finely processed)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoon butter, melted
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • ½ cup key lime juice (freshly squeezed or bottled)
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • FOR THE TOPPING:
  • 1 cup heavy cream, cold
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar (optional)



Instructions :
    TO MAKE THE CRUST:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9-inch pie dish by lightly spraying the inside with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Stir until combined and resembles wet sand. Press mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie dish.
  • Bake crust for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Remove crust from oven and let cool completely. (You can stick it in the fridge while you prepare the filling)
  • To make the filling:
  • In another medium bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and egg yolks until smooth and slightly thickened. Add in key lime juice and zest. Whisk mixture for about a minute, until well combined and thickened.
  • Pour the filling into the prepared cooled crust and bake for 15 minutes in 350 degrees F. Transfer pie to a cooling rack and let cool completely at room temperature before chilling for at least 3 hours or overnight (preferred) until set.
  • When ready to serve, using an electric mixer, whisk the cold heavy cream and sugar (if using) on medium-high speed until soft peaks form.
  • Top pie with whipped cream.
