James Beard's Key Lime Pie Recipe

I clipped it from the New York Times Sunday Magazine section about 16 years ago and lost the recipe...Haven't found it in the books or on-line. As I recall, it called for 6 egg yolks (the white were for optional meringue, which I skipped), a can of condensed milk, key lime juice and zest, and sugar...Possibly a graham cracker crust, or that's just what I used, in a tart sehll, so the filling was rather thin. Baked maybe 15 minutes? Mu husband loved the recipe--does anybody have it? There's a chance it was a Claiborne recipe, but I think not...You can email it to me, if you don't want to print it here.
