Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

  • Author: Krista
  • Yield: 8-10 slices 1x
  • Method: Baking


  • 3 cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup key lime juice – to get that this quantity you’ll need at least 1 full bag or 1520 key limes
  • 1 + 1/2 tablespoon grated lime zest
  • whipped topping – optional

*Note – you will need to either buy a graham cracker crust or make your own before starting this recipe.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

  1. First, begin by zesting enough limes to collect 1 + 1/2 tablespoons of zest. Note – don’t grate too hard, you only want the green, the white pith is bitter, so avoid zesting too deep. Then juice the limes. I cut them in half and use a hand squeezer to get the most juice.
  2. Next, in a bowl, combine condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice, and lime zest. Mix well, remove all sour cream lumps and pour into graham cracker crust.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for about 8 minutes or until small bubbles burst on the surface of the pie.
  4. Refrigerate pie until chilled thoroughly, at least 2 hours. Top with whipped cream and limes if desired, serve chilled and watch everyone enjoy!


I filled a piping bag with whipped topping and piped the rosettes on top then added a little lime zest.
