Key Lime Pie - Susie St. John - YUM!

Key Lime Pie

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup granulared sugar
4 Tablespoons melted butter
2 (14 oz) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 cup keylime juice
2 whole eggs
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tablespoon lime zest

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter with your hands. Press the mixture firmly into a 9 inch pie plate, and bake until brown (about 20 minutes). Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature before filling.

Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees F.

In a separate bowl, combine condensed milk, juice, and eggs. Stir by hand until well blended and pour into the cooled pie shell. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Refrigerate until chilled.

Once cooled, combine the sour cream and powdered sugar and spread on top using a spoon. Garnish with the lime zest (optional)
