Directions:
BAKED LAYER:
Preheat oven to 300º. Whisk sweetened condensed milk, lime juice and egg yolks in a bowl to blend. Pour into the pie crust.

Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the mixture is set. Cool to room temperature.

UNBAKED LAYER:
With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.

Pour over the cooled baked layer. With a butter knife, spread evenly and smooth out the top. Cover and refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours.

Top with sweetened whipped cream or Cool Whip (optional).

This is one of my favorite desserts. If I can't have chocolate, I'll go for the Key Lime Pie.
