OH-SO-EASY KEY LIME PIE

4 large egg yolks (save whites for meringue, if desired)
1 can (14-oz) sweetened condensed milk
3 1/2 ounces Key Lime juice
1 9-inch graham cracker pie crust or pie pastry baked just until lightly browned

In a mixing bowl combine the egg yolks with the sweetened condensed milk on low speed of electric mixer. Slowly pour in the lime juice, mixing until well blended. Pour mixture into the pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until set. Use the egg whites to make a meringue topping or top with whipped cream. Personally, I prefer a dollop of whipped cream atop individual wedges with a very thin slice of lime, slit and twisted atop the whipped cream.
