Happy National Pi Day!  In honor of this fun day, I whipped up a from scratch graham cracker crust key lime pie. Oh so good!  It was a lovely treat post our pulled pork sandwiches.  This pie is deceptively easy and tart and sweet perfection.  A must try!

Ingredients:

Crust:  10 graham cracker sheets
Smart Balance Butter – 5 tablespoons, melted

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In your food processor, pulverize the graham crackers until completely broken down into a sandy texture.  Add the melted butter and blend.  You should be able to pinch the dough mixture together, if it sticks, you can pour out into your pie pan.  If not, you may need to add additional melted butter.  Pour into your pie pan and push down firmly.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden.

Blend the ingredients in your stand mixer with the paddle attachment on.  Blend for about 1-2 minutes or until completely combined.  Pour into the cooled pie crust.  Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 17 minutes.  Remove and let cool. Then refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.  Slice and enjoy!
