Key Lime Pie

Um, yum!

Key Lime Pie
serves about 8-9
Adapted from Allrecipes and Allrecipes

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup white sugar
6 Tb melted, unsalted butter

3 cups sweetened condensed milk (if you come up like 1/3 cup short, it's not a bit deal)
1/2 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
3/4 cup key lime juice (if you juice them yourself, get a designated lime juicer)
1 Tb lime zest (sorry I can't give an exact number of limes)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix crumbs, sugar, and butter, and press into a 8-9 inch pie pan.  Bake for 7 minutes.
2. Lower oven temperature to 350.  Mix condensed milk, sour cream/yogurt, lime juice, and zest.  Pour into crust, and gently tap pan on counter to remove air bubbles.  Bake for 5-8 minutes, until tiny bubble form in the middle, but do not let the pie brown.
3. Let cool, then chill for several hours.  Serve with lime slices or whipped cream.
