Key Lime Pie

Holy Mother of Fruity Desserts. I am a chocolate person hands down. I always want chocolate if I'm having dessert. If there's no chocolate, it's a waste. Not anymore. Key Lime Pie! New love of my life, you have arrived. For Father's Day, we made a Key Lime Pie for my boyfriend's dad. I hadn't even tried it for years so I didn't really remember much about it. I just made it and he took it over for dessert. He came back with a few slices left and was like you neeeeeed to try this. That's the moment when my realization of my love for Key Lime Pie happened. It was really hard not to finish all those few slices.

Key Lime Pie
Yield ~8-10 servings

~10 graham crackers, crushed
4 tablespoons butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup key lime juice

In a food processor, crush graham crackers to crumbs. If you don't have a processor, you can place them in a bag and crush them with a fairly solid or heavy object, such as an ice cream scooper. Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter and mix together. Press into a pie dish. In a separate bowl, mix ythe sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks, and key lime juice. Add some lime zest to pump up the flavor, then pour mixture into pie dish on top of crust. Bake 15 minutes. Let cool, then refrigerate ubtil ready to serve. Add whipped cream if desired.
