Recipe | Key Lime Bars

My husband has been on a Key West kick lately. We listen to the station 'No Shoes Radio' on Sirius XM and a lot of times they broadcast from bars in Key West. I blame this on his new found obsession.  Even though we won't be visiting there for a while. considering we still have an infant, I thought I would give him a piece of the south with these easy Key Lime bars!  



Ingredients:

Crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
5 tbsp salted butter, melted
pinch of salt
Filling:
1- 14oz can sweetened condensed milk 
4 large eggs
2/3 cup Key Lime juice (or lime juice)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine graham cracker crumbs (I was out so I crushed regular graham crackers in a food processor) sugar, melted butter and pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Once mixed press firmly and evenly into a lightly greased 13x9 baking pan. Bake crust for 8 minutes and set aside to cool to room temp.  With a hand mixer, blend together condensed milk, eggs, lime juice, baking powder and salt.  Pour over the cooled crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the filling in set (but not brown!) Refrigerate for at least 4- 5 hours before cutting into squares. You can garnish with whipped cream or lime zest!
