Key Lime Pie Yummy!

I love Key Lime Pie and this recipe is excellent. I have tried it and love it I hope 
you will too. You can make it with either home made crust or use one already 
made from the store. :) 
Key Lime Pie
1/3 c. butter
1/4 c. sugar
1 1/4 c. finely crushed graham cracker

4 large egg yolks
1  14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 lime
1/4 cup key lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest
Whipped topping to garnish

For the crust: 
Melt butter in Microwave in a glass pie dish, then take out and immediately add sugar
 and then add crushed graham crackers. Push it up the sides a little as desired.
Chill it for an hour until firm or you can bake at 375-degrees for 5 min 
but cool before filling.

For the filling:
first pre-heat oven to 350-degrees. With beat the egg yolks until they are mixed well
and look a lighter yellow.  Then add the condensed milk mix on low speed. 
try your hand at Zesting the lime, then juice it. Pour fresh lime juice into a 
1/2 cup measuring cup, fill the cup with the Key Lime juice to make a full
1/2 cup of juice.  Next slowly add the lime juice and zest and continue to 
mix until blended slowly. Pour the mixture into the pie shell and bake 15 
minutes.  Remove quickly and let cool.  Serve with whipped topping and 
you can also add a slice of lime.
