6 egg yolks
5/8 cup sugar
5 oz key lime juice
zest of two limes
32 oz whip topping
1 1/2 packets graham crackers, crushed
3 tbsp crushed toasted walnuts
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
3 tbsp sugar
7/8 stick butter, melted

Heat egg yolks, 5/8 cup sugar, and key lime juice in double boiler, stirring occasionally. Once mixture reaches consistency of pancake batter, remove from heat. Chill in refrigerator for two hours, until it gels. Combine lime zest and whip topping with hand mixer, beginning at medium speed and increasing to high speed until overly thick (you can't overbeat the topping). By hand, fold in lime gel. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine graham cracker crumbs, walnuts, sesame seeds, and 3 tablespoons sugar. Add melted butter and mix thoroughly, until mixture becomes doughlike. Press mixture about 1/4 inch thick into 9-inch pie pan. Bake pie shell for 7 minutes. Let cool. Mound lime mixture into cooled crust. Let pie sit at least an hour in refrigerator before cutting. Garnish each serving with a lime wheel. Serves 6.

This recipe can also be reinterpreted with other citrus fruits, such as persian limes, lemons or even oranges.
