Pour the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of a pie plate. Press the crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate. Bake the crust at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Remove the crust when finished baking.

While the crust is baking, mix up the filling. Whip the egg yolks with the lime zest for about 5 minutes or until the egg yolks are creamy and fluffy. Add in the sweetened condensed milk and whip for another 5 minutes.

Juice your limes with a citrus juicer. I picked up mine a few years back, but there are lots to choose from on Amazon. You can find one that can fit all the different citrus fruit sizes and is able to express a lot of juice with the electric reamer like a Dash Go Dual Citrus Juicer. Finally, pour in the lime juice and stir until just blended.
