Pan 9-10 inch. Serves 8.

1.5 c. graham cracker crumbs
5 T. melted butter
3 T. sugar

Key Lime Layer
3/4 C. Key Lime Juice
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
2 large eggs
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup of boysenberry preserves (a little less if you don’t use all of key lime mixture)


Mix graham cracker crumbs and sugar, add the melted butter and press into a 9-10 inch pie plate. You may not use all of it if you use a shallow pan. Bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes. Cool.

Key Lime Layer

Mix juice, condensed milk, and eggs, and pour into cooled crust (use a much of the key lime mix as your pan will hold). Take spoon and drop spoons of preserves on top of key lime mix and create marble affect by moving a knife around this mix. Do NOT over mix or it will lose the marble affect. Bake for 15-20 minutes in 375 degree oven.
Chill pie.
Spread about a 1/3 cup of boysenberry preserves on top of pie. Chill.
Top with favorite whipped cream topping, plus lime zest, graham cracker crumbs, berries, preserves, white chocolate, and/or nuts if desired. Decorate pie as desired.
Chill and serve.
