We had this pie in a Miami Beach restaurant back in the 50's and begged for the recipe. It's been a family favorite.

You might like this Graham cracker crust better than the store ones.

12 whole graham crackers, crushed
3 T. brown sugar
6 T. butter

350 degrees for 12”
2
Mix 1 can Borden’s Eagle Brand milk with ½ cup fresh lime, Key Lime or lemon juice. Stir until it thickens. Add green food coloring carefully.
3
Pour into cooled crust and cover with ½ pint of whipped sweetened cream (I like heavy cream as it holds up longer). Refrigerate. Best if cut after it has chilled well.
