Key Lime Pie

24 May

Sorry for not posting any new recipes the past couple of days. My Internet shut down which put me in major freak out mode. I really didn’t want to spend a hundred dollars for somebody to help repair everything.  So when I was looking at my wireless box, I put the wireless cable into a different jack.   BAM!  Internet connection!  I really thought guys were the smart techie ones but I guess M is a musician, not a computer genius, obviously.   Anyway, this small glitch has helped me bake a bunch of new goodies to share with you guys.  Since I had nothing to do with my days off, I baked up a storm.  One of the first things I made was Key Lime Pie. It is one of the easiest and cheapest desserts out there.  Enjoy!


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick butter) melted
  • 2 1/2  (14-ounce) cans condensed milk
  • 1 cup key lime or regular lime juice
  • 2 whole eggs
  • zest of one whole lime
  • 1 cup sour cream


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F

Mix the graham cracker crumbs, the sugar and the butter in a bowl. Press the mixture into a 9 inch pie pan and bake until brown about 20 min.  Remove from the oven and set aside.  Lower the oven to 350 degrees F.  In a separate bowl, combine the condensed milk, lime juice, the zest of one lime and the eggs. Whisk until combined and place the filling into the cooled pie shell. Bake for about 15 to 20 min. Allow to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Once chilled, spread the sour cream on top. Enjoy!

    I might have to get in on this. Have you ever cut the sugar or used a sugar substitute?

      No I have not since the condensed milk is the sugar in the key lime pie. I did use only one and a half cans to try and cut a little sugar out. Next time, I was thinking about only using egg whites , whipping them and then folding it into the mixture. Hope that helps! Good luck.

    What a delicious pie! I am pleased to realise that it is very easy to make, so I think I will give it a try soon…
