Federico's Key Lime Pie

My friend Federico make this pie every time there's a party. 
So I asked him to teach me this big classic.
It is sour and sweet to perfection.


for the base:
250 g digestives cookies
80 g butter

for the filling:
150 ml lime juice
397 g condensed milk
3 egg yolks
1 Tbsp lime zest

whipped cream for decoration*

How to:

Make the base reducing the cookies into fine crumbs. Melt the butter and add the digestives. Whisk with a fork. Cover the base of a 23 cm pie tin. Bake in the over at 180° for 10 minutes. Let cool in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.

For the filling mix the milk, juice, egg yolks and zest. Pour the mixture on the base and bake for 20 minutes.
Let cool in the fridge for several hours.
Decorate the surface with wipped cream.
