READY IN: 4hrs 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare the crust: Combine the graham cracker crumbs and butter in a mixing bowl and mix together for a crumbly crust.
  • Press the mixture into an 8-inch pie pan.
  • Bake the crust for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the crust from the oven, but leave the oven on.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the filling.
  • Combine the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk in a mixing bowl and beat with a mixer at high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  • Gradually beat in the lime juice and zest.
  • Pour the mixture into the crust.
  • Bake the pie for 8 minutes, or until the filling is set and an inserted skewer comes out clean and hot to the touch.
  • Remove the pie from the oven.
  • Set the pie on a rack to cool to room temperature.
  • Refrigerate the pie, uncovered, for at least four hours before serving.
  • When ready to serve, make the whipped topping.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and beat on high until whipped cream stands in peaks.
  • Place on top of pie and serve!
