Sky high pie

Key Lime Pie is my favorite.....
The recipe my mom used to make at the beach house every year is the one that's printed right on the side of the Nellie's Key Lime Juice bottle.
1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup of lime juice

Bake for 20 minutes in graham cracker crust at 350 degrees. Cool and refrigerate. Serve with whipped cream!

So easy, and the texture of this pie is phenomenal.
