Great Key Lime Pie

Great Key Lime Pie

Tried out a new key lime pie recipe and loved it.

1 graham cracker crust, the large Kebler size
     (the one labeled 2 extra servings) works well or make one.
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
     (we use our Tongan limes but ordinary limes also work)
4-8 egg yolks (recipe calls for 8 I've done as few as 4 and it all works ok)

Mix egg yolks and zest from the limes in a bowl and beat well, add the milk and lime juice and beat until well mixed. Let sit at room temp while you do the crust.

Toast crust in 350°F oven for 5-10 min until it just starts to smell good.

Pour in pie filling and bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes until middle is still jiggly but edges set.

Cool for at least 10 minutes on a wire rack then put in refrigerator to cool completely, say about 2 hours or so.

Serve very small slices with whipped cream if you wish.
