I will warn you, if you dare put this in your mouth, you won't be able to stop! That won't be to great for your health, but I think most of you can indulge in a simple guilty pleasure such as this one. With the recipe comes a story... Once upon a time a fairy and a troll had a child they later named Leonardo, he was short and loved rainbow, gold, and green. He wants this pie! Serve with whipped cream and ice cream. Sprinkles don't hurt either!

  • Stir graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar together in a bowl until combined. Press the magical creation into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 10 minutes. Let crust cool on a wire rack; leave oven on.

  • Whisk condensed milk and egg yolks together in a bowl until well combined. Add key lime juice and zest; mix well. Whisk in honey to combine. Add food coloring gradually, whisking until filling is green enough for you. Pour filling over the crust.

  • Bake until nearly set, 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool completely on the wire rack so pie can set fully, at least 30 minutes. Cover and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.

Cook's Note:

Use slightly less lime juice if using regular limes.
