Ingredients
  

Filling

  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 tsp grated lime zest two regular limes
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

Crust

  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs 4 whole graham crackers
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 4 tsp granulated sugar

Topping

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream chilled
  • 2 tsp confectioners' sugar
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract clear

Instructions
 

Filling

  • Whisk egg yolks and lime zest together in medium bowl about one minute.
  • Whisk in sweetened condensed milk until smooth, then whisk in lime juice.
  • Cover mixture and set aside at room temperature until thickened, about 30 minutes.

Crust

  • Meanwhile, adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Sprinkle butter and sugar over graham cracker crumbs and mix together. Mixture should resemble wet sand.
  • Press mixture into two 4-3/4 inch mini tart pans or one 6-inch pie plate. Use the back of a spoon to press into the sides.
  • Bake until just beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. It will take a bit longer if using one 6-inch pie plate, about 15 minutes.
  • Transfer pans to a wire rack to cool, but leave oven on.
  • Pour thickened filling into warm pie crusts and bake until center is firm but jiggles slightly, about 15 minutes.
  • Let pie cool on wire rack, about one hour. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate until filling is chilled and set, about 3 hours.

Topping

  • Using hand mixture set at medium-low speed, beat cream, sugar and vanilla in medium bowl until foamy, about 1 minute. Increase speed to high and beat until soft peaks form, 1 to 3 minutes. Pipe whipped cream attractively over the top of the chilled tarts and serve.
