Beth's favorite dessert is Key Lime Pie -- she prefers this to cake on her birthday. This is a really easy recipe. Little prep time required.
1 package of whole graham crackers - pounded or food processed into crumbs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 stick butter, melted
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup key lime or regular lime juice
2 whole large eggs
Mix sugar and graham cracker crumbs in a pie plate. Add melted butter and mix together. Press mixture into the pie plate for the crust. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
In a bowl, mix the condensed milk, lime juice and eggs together. Pour mixture in the baked pie crust. Bake the whole pie for 15 minutes more. Let pie cool and place in the refrigerator until cold.
Serve with whipped cream and some lime zest on top.
