Ingredients:

For the Graham Cracker Crust:

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Key Lime Pie Filling:

  • 3 (14-ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup key lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon key lime zest
  • 6 large egg yolks

For the Whipped Cream Topping:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Additional lime zest, for garnish

Directions:

  1. Prepare the Graham Cracker Crust:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter until evenly moistened.
    • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan, using the back of a spoon to create an even layer.
    • Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool while preparing the filling.
  2. Make the Key Lime Pie Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice, key lime zest, and egg yolks until smooth.
    • Pour the filling over the cooled crust and spread it into an even layer.
    • Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the filling is set.
    • Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. Then refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until well chilled.
  3. Prepare the Whipped Cream Topping:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  4. Assemble the Pie:
    • Once the pie is chilled, spread the whipped cream over the top of the pie.
    • Garnish with additional lime zest, if desired.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Slice and serve the pie chilled to fully appreciate its refreshing flavors.
