Key Lime Pie

My family loves desserts and my mom makes the most impressive ones so it's always hard to top when I host dinner. I always look for something different and to balance out a heavy dinner of chicken parmesan, I wanted to make something lighter.

This key lime pie is an easy make ahead dessert and I make it in a springform pan which makes it look elegant and delicious. This one got rave reviews!


  • 1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup key lime juice
  • 1 tsp grated lime zest
  • 1 cup whipping cream

  • Mix the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar to form pie crust
  • Press into pan (trust me, you do not need to grease it!) and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes

  • Mix together condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice and lime zest
  • Pour on top of pie crust 

  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until tiny pinhole bubbles form on the surface. Be careful not to brown!
  • Chill well
  • Make whip cream and cover on top. 
  • Add lime garnish
