Lime Squares

Lime Squares with Pistachio Graham-Cracker Crust (Adapted from Martha Stewart)

For the crust

2/3 cup shelled pistachios
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon fresh grated lime zest
pinch salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled

For the filling

2 large egg yolks
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh lime juice

To prepare the crust

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare an 8" baking pan by coating it with cooking spray, then lining the bottom with parchment paper, allowing to come up and overhang on two sides.

In a food processor, add pistachios and cracker crumbs, sugar, zest and salt - pulse until pistachios are finely ground. Add butter and pulse to combine. Scoop mixture into the prepared baking pan and press mixture evenly over the bottom and about 1" up the sides. Place into the oven and bake until lightly browned, about 8 to 12 minutes. Remove and set crust aside to cool completely, about 30 minutes.

To prepare the filling

In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and condensed milk. Add lime juice and whisk until smooth and well combined. Pour filling into the cooled crust, gently spreading to the edges.

Place pan into the oven and bake until set, about 13 to 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely - place into the refrigerator and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

Makes about 16 servings.
