Key Lime Pie

This week my sister and her family visited from Chicago. I wanted to do something special for their visit to Florida so I made everybody’s favorite, Key Lime Pie.

Key Lime Pie


1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp granulated sugar

5 Tbsp butter, melted


4 egg yolks

5 ounces key lime juice (Fresh squeezed Persian lime juice is also good)

1 can sweetened condensed milk


Preheat an oven to 350 and combine first four ingredients for crust in a mixing bowl. Add melted butter and stir until mixture is like wet sand.

Press crust into pie dish until you have achieved a uniform thickness throughout. Bake crust in 350 oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool while you make the filling.

Combine egg yolks and lime juice and whisk until smooth. Add sweetened condensed milk and whisk until completely incorporated.

Pour filling into pie crust and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until filling is just set. Remove from oven and chill completely before serving.
