For the crust:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (10 crackers)
1/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the filling:

6 extra-large egg yolks, at room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons grated lime zest
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4 to 5 limes)

For the decoration:

1 cup cold heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Thin lime wedges


1. Preheat oven to 350℉.

2. For the crust, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter in a bowl. Press into a 9-inch pie plate, making sure the sides and the bottom are an even thickness. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely.

3. For the filling, beat egg yolks and sugar on high speed in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment for 5 minutes, until thick. Decrease to medium speed, add condensed milk, lime zest, and lime juice. Pour into the baked pie shell and freeze.

4. For the decoration, beat the heavy cream on high speed with the whisk attachment until soft peaks form. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until firm. Spoon or pipe onto the pie and decorate with lime. Freeze for several hours or overnight.

Serves 8

Woo Hoo! I am in Scotland accompanying my husband who has a meeting in Glasgow. All play for me! Looking forward to my time in this glorious city and also visiting family in Edinburgh.

We are staying in the WEIRDEST hotel, though. It is some kind of futuristic, Samsung-driven place and the rooms are like space pods. The whole place glows orange. Those droids at the top of the post would be right at home in this joint.
