  1. Mix graham wafer crumbs, sugar and melted butter together. Spread in the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Refrigerate.
  2. In a large bowl with electric mixer beat egg yolks until thick and lemon coloured. Continue to beat while gradually adding sweetened condensed milk. Add lime juice and rind and beat well.
