    I think “Life of Chocolate Cream Pi” would be even shorter.

    Key Lime Pie (in two parts)

    From the back of a Christie “Honey Maid” box of Graham cracker crumbs:

    Graham Cracker Crust

    Combine 1 1/4 cups “Honey Maid” Graham Crumbs with 1/4 cup melted non-hydrogenated margarine or butter.

    Press on bottom of 9-inch spring form pan or bottom and sides of 9-inch pie plate.

    Notes from me: Don’t use margarine!!! The taste is terrible!!!

    It really is that simple, just press and spread the graham crumbs until they’re evenly distributed.

    I always use a pie plate.

    For you chocics out there (we have alcohol and alcoholics, we don’t have alcoholoholics) I once bought Oreo cookie crumbs by mistake. They work well.

    Now that you have the pie crust ready…..

    Key Lime filling:

    3 egg yolks
    300 ml (10 U.S. fl oz.) sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 cup Key Lime juice
    2 or 3 drops of green food colouring (optional)

    Whisk everything together.
    Preheat oven to 325° F

    Pour filling into pie crust
    Bake 30 minutes
    Cool to room temperature
    Chill for 1 to 2 hours
    Top with whipped cream and a garnish.

    Notes from me:

    I’ve had this recipe a while, origin unknown.
    Bake on the top rack of your oven.
    I have, successfully, used commercial lime juice made from concentrate. It’s a one to one substitution.
    If you don’t use the food colouring, the pie looks a bit wan, but it’s still tasty!!

    And then, after the movie franchise has played out a decade from now, the last movie in the series will involve a young dairy farmer.
