  1. Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, egg and egg yolks in a large saucepan. Slowly whisk in lime juice, then vanilla almond milk. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until mixture has thickened, whisking constantly. Stir in butter and lime zest and cook for 1 minute more. Whisk in butter and lime zest.

  2. Let cool slightly, then press plastic wrap directly onto the surface and refrigerate for several hours or until well chilled. (May be prepared 2 days ahead.)

  3. To serve, spoon into 8 small dessert cups. Coarsely crumble graham cracker crust over the top of each. Garnish with oven roasted almonds and lime zest, if desired. Makes 8 small servings.
