Ingredients
  • 8 ounces graham crackers, crushed
  • 4 ounces granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
  • 7 large egg yolks
  • 28 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed key lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
Directions
  • For the crust: Combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and cinnamon in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on low, slowly adding the melted butter. Mix for 1 minute.

  • Remove from the mixer and, with your hands, press into an 8-inch pie plate to form a pie shell. Cool in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.

  • Whip the egg yolks in the bowl of an eclectic mixer until just stiff, then add the sweetened condensed milk. Whip for 2 more minutes.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice and cornstarch, making sure not leave any lumps: The mixture should be nice and smooth. Fold the lime mixture into the egg yolk mixture. Pour the mixture into the pie shell.

  • Bake until set, about 30 minutes.
