Until a friend sent me a link of national days, I had no idea today was National Graham Cracker Day. The first thing that pops into my head when graham crackers are mentioned is a great recipe for Key Lime Pie.
I don’t crunch the crackers to make the crust. I do it the lazy way and buy a pre-made one at the store.
This recipe has only three ingredients for the filling.
1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks (no whites)
1/2 cup Nellie and Joe’s Key West LIme Juice
Combine milk, egg yolks and lime juice. Blend until smooth.
Pour filling into pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Allow to stand 10 minutes before refrigerating.
Just before serving, top with freshly whipped cream and garnish with lime slices, if desired.
A slice of this pie is a sure way to cool off on a hot summer day!
