Key Lime Pie with Graham Cracker Crust
|prep time||Bake time||Set time|
|15 mins||15 mins||~3 1/2 hrs|
- 1¾ cup graham cracker crumbs
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup unsalted butter (melted)
- 2 cans of 14oz. sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup greek yogurt *vanilla
- Zest of two key limes
- juice of two key limes
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- ¼ cup powdered sugar
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375 (Degrees F) and lightly butter a pie dish. Set aside. In a saucepan or in the microwave melt the butter until completely liquid and set for cooling. In a zip lock bag crush the graham crackers into very small crumbs.
In a medium bowl combine the granulated sugar and graham crackers *crushed* into small crumbs. pour the melted butter overtop and stir with a fork until an even texture appears. Press into pie dish evenly all around and up the sides.
Bake the crust for ~ 15 minutes in the oven and then take out and let cool.
For the filling, in a medium bowl combine the condensed milk and yogurt, along with the lime juice and zest. Stir until well combined and pour on-top of cooled crust. Place in the freezer for ~ 3 hours to set. However, if it sets in the freezer for about 1 hour it will be creamy if you prefer that texture over a more solid one!
For the whipping cream, combine all the ingredients listed and whip using an electric mixer for ~5 mins until peaks appear. Top onto the pie with the addition of limes and enjoy!
