Best Key Lime Pie

This is my recipe for the best key lime pie.
It's made the traditional way with just one additional ingredient.
3-oz of cream cheese to make it extra smooth and creamy.
Key lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, and egg yolks.
 Combine condensed milk, cream cheese and egg yolks.
 Beat for 3-4 minutes until creamy.
Mix in the key lime juice.
You'll need a graham cracker pie crust (HERE)
 Pour filling into crust.
 Bake for about 10 minutes to set up.
Let cool, then refrigerate.
 Serve with whipped cream.
 Tart and sweet.
It's a classic. Perfect with coffee!
1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
3 egg yolks
3-oz cream cheese
2/3 C key lime juice, fresh or Nellie & Joe's
1 prepared graham cracker crust (my recipe HERE)
Whipped cream for topping to serve

Beat egg yolks, cream cheese and condensed milk
with an electric mixer for about 3-4 minutes
 on medium high until very smooth. 
Reduce speed to low and slowly add the lime juice. 
Beat one minute until thick. Pour into prepared
 pie crust. Bake about 10 minutes at 350 until
filling is just set. Cool to room temperature,
then refrigerate. 
Serve topped with a good dollop of whipped cream.
