Key LimeRock Pie
From the LimeRock Inn
Rockland, Maine

Crust Ingredients:
1 cup ground vanilla wafers
¼ cup ground granola (plain)
5 tablespoons butter (melted)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl blend together dry ingredients.  
Pour melted butter over mixture.  Using a wooden spoon, gently mix ingredients
until wet.

Lightly spray non-stick coating inside a 9 inch pie pan.  Pour crust mixture into
pan and press mixture along the sides of the pan using a fork.  Then press
remaining mixture evenly on the bottom of the pan to form a crust.  Bake for 5
minutes and set aside to cool.

Filling Ingredients:
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon key lime zest
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
½ cup key lime juice (fresh if possible)

Using an electric mixer at full speed beat egg yolks and zest for 5 minutes or
until mixture has a shiny luster.  Slowly pour condensed milk into the mixture
and beat for another 3 minutes or until thickened.  Reduce mixture to low and
add juice just enough to combine.  Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust and
bake for 12 minutes or until the filling is completely set.

Serving tips:  After pie has cooled to room temperature, refrigerate for an hour
and serve chilled with crème fraiche or whipped cream and garnish as desired.
