This classic Key Lime Pie recipe comes direct from the revered Joe's Stone Crab restaurant, a landmark in Miami's South Beach section. Luscious and creamy Key Lime Pie is always a tart yet sweet dessert that satisfies everyone's taste buds.

Serves: 8

Chilling Time: 2 hr

Cooking Time: 10 min

What You'll Need:
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup Key lime juice (see Tips)

What To Do:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat bottom of a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray.

2) In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar; mix well then press mixture over bottom and up sides of prepared pie plate to form a crust; set aside.

3) In a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat egg yolks and lime zest 5 minutes, or until fluffy. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk and continue beating 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low and gradually beat in lime juice just until combined. Pour filling into pie crust.
