Key Lime Pie

1 ½ cups crushed chocolate graham crackers
3 tablespoons sugar
8-10 tablespoons melted butter, slightly cooled

Preheat your oven to 350F. Mix together the graham crumbs and sugar in a bowl, add the butter a little at a time, mixing well, until the mixture resembles wet sand. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Key Lime filling:
6 egg yolks
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 ¼ cup key lime juice or any fresh squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons grated lime zest
12 ounces whipping cream, whipped
8 ounces dark chocolate shavings

Whip the yolks for a few minutes until they are a little fluffy. Add the condensed milk, key lime juice and grated lime zest to the yolks and mix well. Pour into the prepared chocolate crust. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes, until the mixture is just set. Allow to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes then chill in the refrigerator. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. print recipe
