Classic Key Lime Pie

Ingredients: – 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumb – 1/3 cup granulated sugar – 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted – 3 large egg yolk

– 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk – 1/2 cup freshly squeezed Key lime juice – 1 tablespoon Key lime zest – Whipped cream, for serving (optional)

Instructions: 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). 2. In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter until well mixed. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish.

Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then remove and let cool while you prepare the filling.

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Gradually whisk in the Key lime juice and zest until well combined. 2. Pour the filling into the cooled crust and spread it out evenly.

1. Return the pie to the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the filling is set but still slightly jiggly in the center. 2. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely on a wire rack.

1. Once cooled, refrigerate the pie for at least 2 hours, or until well chilled. 2. Serve slices of Key Lime Pie with whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
