3/4 cup granola -- with no raisins or other dried fruit
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs -- from about 6 whole graham crackers
1/4 cup unsalted butter -- melted
3 tablespoons sugar

Baked Layer
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk (fat free is fine)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice -- Key limes or regular
3 large egg yolks

Chilled Layer
8 ounces cream cheese -- room temperature (reduced fat fine)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup fresh lime juice -- Key lime or regular
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whipped cream -- sweetened

For Crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Using on/off turns, blend granola in food processor until coarsely ground. Transfer granola to medium bowl. Mix in graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Press crumb mixture over bottom and up sides of 9-inch-diameter deep dish glass pie dish. Bake until crust is golden brown, about 8 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300 deg. Remove crust from oven and cool completely.

For Baked Layer: Whisk condensed milk, lime juice, and egg yolks in medium bowl to blend. Pour into crust. Bake until custard is set, about 25 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

For Chilled Layer: Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese, condensed milk, lime juice, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Pour over cooled baked layer; smooth top. Cover and chill until firm, at least 4 hours. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated.)

Pipe sweetened whipped cream decoratively around edges of the pie. Cut into wedges and serve.

Personal Notes:
Easy and so very yummy. I made the crust with ginger snap crumbs instead of graham cracker crumbs. Key Lime Pie is my husband's favorite, and he loved this!
