My absolute favorite go-to pie to bring over for a pot luck or similar. 6 ingredients– love the simplicity of it all! Easy pie, but still tasty and impressive enough to bring to friends/neighbors.
Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 c graham cracker crumbs from 9 (2 1/4-inch by 4 3/4-inch) crackers
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 c plus 2 tbsp fresh (or bottled if you must) Key lime juice
Method:
  •  Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter in a bowl with a fork until combined well, then press mixture evenly onto bottom and up side of a 9-inch (4-cup) glass pie plate.
  • Bake crust in middle of oven 10 minutes and cool in pie plate on a rack. Leave oven on.
  • Whisk together condensed milk and yolks in a bowl until combined well. Add juice and whisk until combined well (mixture will thicken slightly).
  • Pour filling into crust and bake in middle of oven 15 minutes. Cool pie completely on rack (filling will set as it cools), then chill, covered, at least 8 hours. Garnish with cute, cut lime slivers for some added flare.
