Simply the best Key Lime pie I've ever had.


6 tablespoon Unsalted butter; melted, plus more for greasing the pan
1 cup Chocolate graham crackers; (9 whole crackers)
1/2 cup Almonds; finely ground
1/3 cup Sugar
1 1/4 cup Key lime juice; freshly squeezed
1 teaspoon Lime zest; finely grated
2 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 large Egg; at room temperature, lightly beaten
Whipped Topping
1/2 cup Heavy cream; cold
1/2 cup Sour cream; cold
2 teaspoon Sugar
Key lime; for garnish

1. Make the Crust: Preheat the oven to 375 F and butter a 10-inch pie plate. In a food processor, pulse the graham cracker crumbs with the ground almonds and the sugar until thoroughly blended. Add the melted butter and pulse until the crumbs are moistened. Press the crumbs evenly over the bottom and up the side of the pie pan to form the crust. Bake for about 20 minutes - just until the almonds are lightly browned. Let the crust cool to room temperature.

2. Make the Filling: In a bowl, whisk together the lime juice, lime zest, condensed milk and eggs until smooth. Pour the filling into the cooled crust and bake for about 20 minutes - until set around the edge and slightly jiggly in the center. Let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate until very firm - at least 6 hours or overnight.

3. Make the Whipped Topping: In a bowl, using a hand mixer, beat the heavy cream and sour cream until soft peaks form - about 2 minutes. Beat in the sugar until stiff peaks form - about 1 minute more. Garnish the pie with the whipped topping and key lime slices and serve.
