Here's the recipe for this good looking pie:
Brooke's Key Lime Birthday Pie
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
3 tbsp. sugar
15 graham crackers
1 cup Key lime juice (depends how big they are but I ended up using 30 Key limes)
2 14 oz. cans Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
2 whole eggs
1 tsp. lime zest
- Preheat oven to 350º. Either food process the graham crackers into homogeneous crumbs or do like I did and put them in a ziplock and beat them mercilessly with a rolling pin. Combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Press mixture into a pie tin with fingers. Bake for about 8-10 minutes being careful not to burn. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
- Add eggs and egg yolks and mix with beaters until thick and light yellow. Add condensed milk and ½ of lime juice and blend until very smooth like pudding. Add lime zest and the rest of the lime juice and blend on low for a few seconds. Pour into cooled pie crust.
- Bake for about 15-20 minutes until center is firm but pie filling is still a bit jiggly. Allow pie to cool then refrigerate. Top with freshly made whipped cream and a little lime zest.
