KEY LIME PIE

There are starting to be glimpses of spring around here. We moved to Utah about 9 months ago and I have to say my very favorite thing is that Utah has 4 seasons!

We were in Maryland for almost 8 years where it’s basically one season…. humidity! Which was not my friend πŸ™‚Β 

I always crave key lime when spring hits. Speaking of key lime, have y’all tried the frosted key lime shake from Chick-fil-a? Oh yum. If you get the chance give it a try.Β

This no bake key lime could not be simpler to make. It uses a store-bought prepared graham cracker crust and a cool and creamy key lime filling that’s only 4 ingredients.Β 

I can’t even describe the lightness and creaminess of this pie. It really is so delicious and it’s more of a light key lime flavor so it’s great for those that don’t love that “make-your-face-pucker” type of key lime pie.Β

MY TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE

  • Plan ahead because this pie needs to be refrigerated overnight (for best results) or at least 8 hours. My pie was in the fridge for closer to 1 1/2 days before I used it and it was crazy yum. So basically, you could make it up to two days in advance even.Β 
  • If you want more of a strong key lime flavor then do not add the powdered sugar into the filling mixture. Maybe taste it before you add the powdered sugar and see what you think. As the pie sits in the fridge the flavors develop and it does get slightly sweeter.Β 
  • If you want to make your own graham cracker crust, awesome! Just make sure that it’s a 9″ pie size.Β 
  • I have never tried this recipe with light cream cheese and low fat sweetened condensed milk, so I can’t say for sure what the results would be. I am sure it would work fine, maybe not be as thick and creamy?
  • Leftovers keep well for several day. I am stilling nibbling on the leftovers at my house, and it’s been like 5 days πŸ™‚Β

Ingredients
key lime pie
  • 1 (6 oz) store-bought prepared graham cracker crust
  • 2 bars (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup key lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
key lime whipped cream
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon key lime juice
  • zest of lime, optional (as much or little as wanted)
Instructions
  1. In a bowl with a hand mixer, or bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the softened cream cheese, and sweetened condensed milk until combined and no lumps remain. 

    ** Best way to soften cream cheese is to place the unwrapped cream cheese onto a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 30-45 seconds. You want it soft to prevent lumps in the filling mixture, but not boiling hot. So watch carefully. 

  2. Add in the key lime juice and powdered sugar and blend until combined. Pour mixture into the prepared graham cracker crust and smooth out the top.

  3. Cover with the enclosed plastic lid and refrigerate overnight, or at least 8 hours, but overnight is preferred.
Key Lime Whipped Cream
  1. When ready to serve combine the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and key lime juice into a bowl. Beat together until thick and stiff peaks form. Spread on top of the pie or put inside a piping bag with a tip and pipe it on top of the pie. 

    You can either mix the lime zest into the whipped cream or zest it on top of the pie as shown in the pictures. 

Recipe Notes

If you prefer to make your own graham cracker crust that's totally fine. Just make sure it's the 9" pie size.Β 

Β 

DO NOT get the graham cracker crust that is '2 extra servings'. You just want the 6 oz sized crust.Β 

Β 

You will find key lime juice in the juice aisle of the grocery store. It's usually by the lemon juice. If you really can't find it, you can substitute with lime juice but I really recommend getting the key lime.Β 

Β 

When zesting the lime only zest on the very outer surface of the skin. The more you zest into the skin, the more bitter the lime zest will become.Β 

Β 

If you want more of a strong key lime flavor then do not add the powdered sugar into the filling mixture. Maybe taste it before you add the powdered sugar and see what you think. As the pie sits in the fridge the flavors develop and it does get slightly sweeter.
