  2. In your 9-inch pie plate, mix crushed graham cracker, melted butter, sugar, and lime zest.
  3. Firmly press the crumb mixture into the bottom and along the sides of your pie dish.
  4. Bake it for 10-15 minutes until the crust starts browning. remove and let it cool to room temperature.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed milk, lime juice, egg yolks, and lime zest until smooth.
  6. Pour mixture into your cooled crust and bake in the oven at 325ºF/ 160ºC for 25-30 minutes.
