Key Lime Pie: The Only One I’ll Make

Picture: AllRecipes

This is absolutely my favourite key lime pie recipe. I tried making the pie only once before, but it didn’t turn out so good. So a few days ago, I was at my friend’s cottage and her parents wanted her to make their favourite pie; key lime pie. Since I love baking, I volunteered to help out. It was one of the simplest, easiest recipes to do. Just mix a few ingredients, pour it in a crust, bake it and refrigerate! It tastes limey, rich and smooth, and it doesn’t fall like mush; it stays perfectly in place when cutting it. Feel free to add an extra lemon piece on top!


1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust

3 cups sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup sour cream

3/4 cup lime juice

1 tbsp. grated lime zest



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

2. In a medium bowl, combine condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice and lime zest. Pour into crust.

3. Bake in oven for 5-9 minutes, until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of pie. Do not brown.

4. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight. Garnish with limes or/and whipped cream if desired.

    Wow this looks delicious. What do graham crackers taste/ look like? We don’t have these in Australia but I can probably find something similar with some help. My boyfriend just attempted to reach into my iPad to eat it so I better try this recipe!

    • mostlydesserts replied:

      Haha it’s crushed graham crumbs so they taste like sweet crackers i guess? Not really sure how to explain it, have you ever had smores? Crackers with marshmallows and chocolate.. well they’re the crackers :)
