Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar and optional add-ins; mix well. Press into 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 17-20 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from oven; let cool. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

4 large egg yolks
½ c. freshly squeezed lime juice (2-5 lemons depending on size)
1 T. grated lime zest
Method for Filling:
In bowl, whisk together condensed milk, egg yolks, lime juice and zest. Pour into prepared cooled crust. Bake for 17-20 minutes, just until center is set. Let cool completely. While pie is baking, chill large mixing bowl and whisk attachment in preparation for making whipped cream.

Place cream in a large cold mixing bowl. Beat at medium-high speed until the cream begins to thicken. Sprinkle sugar over cream. Add extracts and sour cream.
