    2/3 cup shelled pistachios
    1 cup (4 ounces) graham-cracker crumbs
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 tablespoons grated lime zest

    In a food processor, finely chop pistachios with graham-cracker crumbs, sugar, and zest. Blend in butter. Press mixture into bottom and 1 inch up sides of prepared pan. Bake until lightly browned, 8 to 12 minutes. Cool crust, 30 minutes.
    In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and condensed milk. Add lime and lemon juices; whisk until smooth. Pour filling into cooled crust; carefully spread to edges.
    Bake until set, about 15 minutes. Cool in pan on rack; then chill at least 1 hour before serving. Using parchment paper overhang, lift out of pan, and transfer to a cutting board. With a serrated knife, cut into 16 squares, wiping knife with a damp kitchen towel between each cut.
