 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      9 Inch        Graham Cracker Pie Shell
    1 1/2  Teaspoons     Lime Rind -- grated
      1/2  Cup           Fresh Lime Juice -- from about 3 limes
      1/4  Cup           Fresh Lemon Juice -- from about 1 lemon
   28      Ounces        Sweetened Condensed Milk -- 2 (14oz) cans
      1/4  Teaspoon      Green Food Coloring
                         Sweetened Whipped Cream -- for garnish
                         **Graham Cracker Pie Shell:
    1 1/4  Cups          Graham Crackers -- finely crushed
    2      Tablespoons   Margarine -- melted
    2      Teaspoons     Sugar
 Prepare pie shell and set aside.
 To make filling, wash limes well. Using a hand-held grater, grate rind
 of limes using the small holes of the grater. Extract juice from limes
 and lemon. Combine rind, lime and lemon juice, sweetened condensed milk
 and food coloring together gently with spoon; avoid over mixing. Pour
 into prepared pie shell and bake 5 minutes at 350 degrees. Refrigerate
 at least 2 hours prior to slicing. Top with whipped cream.
 Combine all ingredients and mix well. Place in 9-inch pie pan and pat
 down evenly to form shell. Bake at 350 degrees 5 minutes.
 Using freshly squeezed juices is the “key” here, and the combination of
 lime juice with the lemon juice is very close to the actual taste of key
 limes. (Real key limes are hard to come by and expensive, as well.) Use
 a hand grater, or, if you have one, a zester, to remove the lime peel.
 Just avoid the white pith underneath, as its taste is quite bitter.
