This pie is traditionally made with key limes (hence the name) & homemade graham cracker crust, but I used regular limes & a leftover frozen pie shell instead. It was still MAGNIFICENT! Who cares what it's called when pie tastes this good!

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
lime zest, heaping!
1/2 c
lime juice
2
egg yolks
1 can(s)
sweetened condensed milk
1
pie shell, baked

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Mix lime juice, lime zest, and egg yolks to a mixing bowl. Add in the condensed milk and mix until thick and smooth.
2
Taste your mixture and see if it's "limey" enough for you. If not, add a little more zest.
3
Pour mixture into your pie crust, and bake for 15 minutes. Take it out and transfer to the refrigerator to cool - at least one hour. Longer is even better.
