    1      tablespoon    butter
    1 1/2  cups          chopped pecans
      3/4  cup           graham cracker crumbs
    2                    lime rind -- grated
      3/4  teaspoon      cinnamon
    1 1/2  tablespoons   sugar
    7                    egg yolk
    2      14oz cans     sweetened condensed milk
      1/2  cup           key lime juice
    2                    lime rind -- grated
                         whipped cream
 Saute pecans in butter until lightly browned.  Place nuts and butter in 
 food processor, and add the crumbs, lime peel, cinnamon, sugar, and mix 
 till coarse.  Press into a 10 pie plate, reserving some for garnish if 
 you like.
 Beat egg yolks at high speed 4-5 minutes.  Slowly add condensed milk with 
 the mixer running at medium, then add lime juice the same way.  Add peel 
 and mix slowly.  Pour mixture into the prepared crust.
 Fill baking pan halfway with water, and place on lowest rack of the oven.  
 Place pie plate on rack above water, and bake at 300 degrees until firm, 
 20-25 minutes.  Do not allow pie to brown.
 Remove pie, and cool to room temperature, then place in refrigerator to 
 set and chill for about 4 hours.  To serve, you may garnish with whipped 
 cream and crust crumbs if you like

 NOTES : The “Key” limes have a sharper taste than regular ones, but they're 
 similar to the yellow limes you can find in Mexican markets.  You can use 
 the regular limes, but the pie won't have the tartness it’s supposed to.
