Classic Key Lime Pie
Adapted from Professional Baking, 5th Edition; serves 6-8


ingredients
shell

4 oz graham cracker crumbs
2 oz sugar
2 oz melted butter

filling


1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
5 oz key lime juice or lime juice (freshly squeezed, but bottled works too)
4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
whipped cream, optional

instructions


Preheat to 350. Mix sugar and crumbs in bowl. Add butter and mix with hands until all is wet. Press into sprayed pie plate/tin, and press up the sides. Use another shell to place on top to even out the mixture. Bake alone for 4 minutes.

Mix milk with lightly beaten eggs. Add in juice. If you want color, add food color too. Pour into baked shell and bake for 20-25 minutes, until "jiggly but firm". Let cool. Add whipped cream, if using.
