    BEACH WALK CAFE’S KEY LIME PIE
    Crust:
    • 2 cups graham crackers crumbs
    • 3 T dark brown sugar
    • 1 t ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
    • 1/16 t salt
    • 6 T unsalted butter, melted
    Filling:
    • 4 egg yolks, room temperature
    • Finely grated rind of 1 lime
    • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
    • Whipped cream (optional)
    Combine crumbs, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir in melted butter. Press mixture into a 9-inch glass pie plate. (Crust will be thick.) Refrigerate 15 minutes.
    Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine egg yolks and lime rind in a mixing bowl. Beat with a mixer on high speed 8 minutes. (The eggs should be pale yellow and fluffy.) Gradually add condensed milk and beat 7 minutes, or until fluffy. Reduce speed to low and slowly add lime juice, beating about 2 minutes. Pour filling into chilled pie shell.
    Bake about 12 minutes, until filling is set. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Refrigerate 3 hours before serving. Top with whipped cream, if using, before serving. Serves 8.
