Summer is coming and nothing says Florida summer like some refreshing key lime pie! Enjoy!
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
3 large egg yolks
⅔ cup fresh lime juice
½ cup sliced almonds
Whipped cream or any whipped topping
lime slices, optional
lime zest, optional
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, sliced almonds, lime slices, and lime zest if desired.
