Key Lime Pie

Creamy Key Lime Pie

Probably my all time favorite pie! Creamy with a tang. And it’s easy to make too!


For the Crust

12 graham crackers, crushed

6 tablespoons butter, melted

1/4 cup organic sugar

pinch of sea salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the crushed crackers, sugar and salt. Pour the melted butter on top and incorporate with a fork until well blended. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes and cool. Turn oven down to 325 degrees.

For the Filling

1 can sweetened condensed milk

3/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

4 large egg yolks

Whisk together the 3 ingredients in a medium size bowl. Pour into pie shell. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool. Chill for up to a day.

For the Topping

1 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup powdered sugar

Whip the cream and sugar in a medium bowl with a hand held mixer until peaks form. Top the pie and serve.
