Key Lime Pie

Ingredients for the Graham Cracker Crust:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup granulated sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Ingredients for the Key Lime Filling:

4 large egg yolks
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh key lime juice
1 tablespoon key lime zest
Whipped cream and lime slices for garnish


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted unsalted butter until the mixture resembles wet sand.
Press the graham cracker mixture firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish to form the crust.
Bake the graham cracker crust in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, then remove it from the oven and let it cool completely.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk until well combined.
Stir in the fresh key lime juice and key lime zest, creating a tangy and zesty lime filling.
Pour the key lime filling into the cooled graham cracker crust, spreading it out evenly.
Bake the Key Lime Pie in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until the filling is set.
Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool to room temperature.
Once cooled, refrigerate the Key Lime Pie for at least 2 hours, or until it’s fully chilled and ready to serve.
Garnish the pie with whipped cream and lime slices for a refreshing and visually appealing presentation.
Delight in the tangy bliss of this Key Lime Pie—a zesty and refreshing dessert that’s perfect for any occasion!
