½ cup ground pretzels
½ cup graham cracker crumbs
¼ cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
Set oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients in a bowl until crumbs are all moist. Then pat into a buttered pie tin to form an even crust along the bottom and sides. Bake for about 10 minutes or until crust starts to brown slightly around the edges.
3 egg yolks
1 ½ tsp fresh lime zest
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup lime juice (I use about 5-6 fresh squeezed regular limes and top it off with store bought lime juice if needed)
Whisk egg yolks with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy and lighter in color (about 2-3 minutes). Add the lime zest and the can of sweetened condensed milk. Beat until mixture gets slightly thicker. Add 2/3 cup of fresh lime juice and mix until just blended. If green color is desired, add 1-2 drops of green food coloring as well. Add the filling into the crust and bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until the filling is set (jiggle the pan to test for filling movement).
Let pie cool and serve with whipped cream. I usually top with extra lime zest for garnish.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 Tbs powdered sugar
Mix in electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
