Key Lime Bars

I made these Key Lime Bars for dessert tonight.  
First time and will make them more, they are so good and so very easy to make.  

Remember to always wear your "Mimi's Magic Apron"
 when cooking.  

Things just taste better...

Key Lime Bars

For the Crust:
1½ cups crushed graham crackers
2 tabl. Sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
½ cup sweetened flaked coconut

In a small bowl, combine the crumbs, coconut and sugar; add butter and blend well.  Press onto the bottom of a nine inch springform pan.
Bake at 350°F for 8 minutes; cool on wire rack.

For the filling:
3 cups sweetened condensed milk
½ cup sour cream
¾ cup key lime juice
1 tabl. Grated lime zest

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl, combine condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice, and lime rind.  Mix well and pour into graham cracker crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 5 - 8 minutes, until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of pie.  Do not Brown.  Chill pie thoroughly before serving.  
Cut into 16 bars:  garnish with whipped cream and toasted coconut.
