Graham Cracker Pie Crust

1 pkg. graham crackers (1 ¼ cups)

3 T. sugar

5 T. butter, melted

Rolling pin the graham crackers into crumbs in a large Ziploc bag. Pour into 9” pie plate. Add sugar and blend with crumbs. Add melted butter and press down into pie pan as well as up the sides of the pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes.

Not Key Lime Pie Filling

3 eggs yolks

1 can Carnation Sweetened Condensed Milk

½ c. lime juice (Larger Persian limes work just fine for Not Key Lime Pie!)

2 tsp. lime zest

Beat egg yolks with hand mixer until smooth and creamy looking, about 2-3 minutes.

Add condensed milk slowly, using hand mixer to incorporate, about 3-4 minutes.

Blend in the lime juice and zest. Pour into pie filling and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until firm.
